Situated in a scenic valley on a narrow
fjord, Larsen Bay is a hub of commercial and sport fishing activity on
Kodiak Island's west coast. The area is thought to have been inhabited for
at least 2,000 years. Hundreds of artifacts have been uncovered in the
area. Russian fur traders frequented the Island in the mid-1700s. The bay
was named for Peter Larsen, an Unga Island furrier, hunter and guide. In
the early 1800s, there was a tannery in Uyak Bay. The present-day Natives
are Alutiiq (Russian-Aleuts). Alaska Packers Association built a cannery
in the village in 1911. The City was incorporated in 1974. Area
lodges lure anglers from around the world for some of the best fishing in
