Fishing for Salmon in the Homer Fishing Lagoon
The Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon or more commonly referred to as the Homer Spit Fishing Hole
just might be the most popular salmon fishing location in Homer Alaska. The Homer Spit Fishing
Hole is extremely popular with residents and visitors alike. The salmon returning to the lagoon
come from hatchery stock. The fishery is maintained to provide an affordable and easily accessed
place for just about anyone to come and enjoy the sport of salmon fishing in Alaska. The construction
of a handicapped accessible platform and ramp makes for easy and enjoyable fishing for everyone
that wishes to come on down and wet a line.
There are two main salmon species that are stocked in the lagoon. the first is the large and
salmon, (Chinook salmon), returning around mid May and into early to mid July. Those mighty
King salmon are directly followed by an early run of silver salmon starting in mid July, just
as the King salmon run comes to an end. The silvers continue into early August before a late
run begins to arrive a week or so later in mid August continuing into mid September.
On the western end of the fishing lagoon is a campground complete with fish cleaning
tables, carcass waste bens, restroom facilities, and a small picnic area provided for your use.
There is plenty of area for sitting or standing as you enjoy watching all of the excitement
