Best Time Of Year To Freshwater Fish in Yakutat Alaska

Freshwater fishing in Yakutat, on the Situk River, offers a variety of fish species at varying times a year. Understanding this may change the time of year you choose to book your trip with us to The Yakutat Lodge.

If you are wanting to catch steelhead trout we suggest booking during April or May, or September through November. We offer fly, drift or spin fishing gear to best suit your preference and ability.

The Situk River hosts the largest wild-stock Steelhead population in Alaska. It hosts runs of all species of salmon including King, Sockeye, Pinks, and Silvers from June – October, in the 16 to 22-pound range.  There is nothing like the peaceful and tranquil experience one has while fishing the clear beautiful waters of the Situk River, and how quickly that feeling shifts to the natural high when you hook that giant Salmon!
