The 2018 Yakutat fishing season has started off great!! Our guests are enjoying saltwater and freshwater fishing daily.
Steelhead season is still in full swing. Water has been high due to recent rains, but is now on the drop and fishing is picking up again. Steelhead should continue to arrive on every tide change for the next couple weeks.
It’s been a very eventful first few weeks of being open. The steelhead are on the lines in good numbers. It’s been great to see new and old faces returning to the lodge.
And it’s only the beginning. Expect to see more photos and updates as the season progresses.

There have been many upgrades to The Yakutat Lodge since the new owners took over in October of 2016. With this being the first year in operation we have learned a lot and have taken all requests into consideration. Thank you to all of our guests for their feedback. The Yakutat Lodge wanted to let its valued guests know exactly what updates have occurred and how they might affect your stay with us.
We will start with the upgrades to our fishing fleet. Last year we had all of our ocean vessels sent to Juneau, the upgrades that were completed were; new outboard motors, new onboard heaters, new electronics and all hulls where cleaned and refurbished. We currently have stocked up with some of the best new rods and reels in the industry for our guests to enjoy. Our freshwater clients will be happy to learn that we are adding two new Pavati Drift Boats. These boats have heaters for those chilly Alaska mornings, a heated compartment for meals on the river or as Pavati calls it a “Pizza Oven”, flat floors for ease of movement, built-in fish box and a padded fly fishing casting area to help with clients standing in a moving boat. The new Pavati Drift boats are comfortable and versatile for a great day on the Situk. We also have added several newer Suburban’s to our fleet to make transportation to and from destinations more comfortable.
We have done major upgrades to many of our accommodations as well. “The Big House” has all new carpeting, furniture, queen log beds and new comfortable mattresses. Keep in mind that the big house is ideal for a multitude of different types of groups. Whether you are planning a corporate retreat for your high-end clients or a family reunion, the big house is a perfect fit for up to 18 guests. The Lodge has been updated with a new kitchen and refurbished bar for all of your dining and drinking desires. This is a place to relax and socialize with a cozy atmosphere. Our Airport Motel has been renovated with new queen log beds, comfortable new mattresses, new flooring, and new interior furnishing. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible while enjoying the rustic beauty Alaska has to offer.
The Yakutat Lodge is committed to our guests new and old. We want to create a warm and welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for our guests to enjoy. For all inquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-YAKUTAT (9258828).

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.
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).
It may be quiet and peaceful out on the river, but it’s not this silent.
Imagine the trickle of the water, splashing of the fish, the chirping of the birds and the humming of the bees. Plus the unexpected sound of the drone flying overhead. This gives you a bird’s eye view as to what a day on the Situk River with the Lodge’s experienced guides is like.
Man and nature as one, untouched and unspoiled. This is what Yakutat has to offer.
