The Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon (aka The Fishing Hole) is a popular park with both locals and visitors. The lagoon is stocked with fry that grow up to provide sport fishing. The fishing hole has a handicapped accessible platform and ramp. King salmon return mid-May to early July followed by an early run of silvers mid-July to early August and a late run early August to mid-September. Fish cleaning tables, restroom facilities, and a small picnic area are also provided. And not too far away is a handy campground for motorhomes or tent campers.
There are many other popular fishing locations flanking Homer both in Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet. For example, fishermen and women can be seen most every summer day, regardless of weather, casting from the shores surrounding Land's End Resort on the tip of the Spit.
Boat people of course have many other options. For example, very productive halibut fishing ground lies just offshore from the sweet little town of Seldovia across the bay and southwest of Homer in Cook Inlet. Fishing isn't just a recreation here. It is an important source of food and income for many.
