Yakutat Lodge Fishing Report September 12, 2017

Silver Season on the river is in full swing. The fishing is stupid good. Thousands of Silvers entered the system this week and should continue for the several weeks straight. Flies, Jigs, and Spinners are very effective for the aggressive fresh Silvers. All 14 miles of the river is full of fish now and the guides are reporting 40 to 75 fish landed per boat each day.
Ocean conditions remain good for Halibut and Silvers. Although the Silver fishing is slowing down, there are still plenty of residual fish swimming around out there.

The weather has been wet, but not too cold yet.

FISHING REPORT FROM YAKUTAT ALASKA AUGUST 25TH, 2017

Water levels have finally risen from the recent rains and it’s calling for more rain to come, which will keep the river in good shape for the kick off to Silver Season.

The number of Pink Salmon have started to decrease as the Silver numbers are increasing on every tide.

Silver Salmon and Halibut fishing have continued to be exceptional in the bay.

FISHING REPORT FROM YAKUTAT ALASKA AUGUST 15TH, 2017

Ocean fishing for Silvers is still going strong with limits being reached on a daily basis, halibut fishing remains strong, with many fish over a hundred pounds this week.

The river is full of Pink Salmon, about 400,000 to be exact. Silver Salmon are starting to show up in the river on every incoming tide, not in big numbers yet, but that could change any day now. This next 6 weeks will be the time when the most amount of fish are present in the system, and you have the chance at 50 to 100 fish to the boat days. (Mostly Pinks).
