Alaska halibut fishing lodge options exist throughout southeast and southcentral Alaska. Choosing the right one can be a challenging proposition based on a number of factors. Some considerations include: boat ride length to the fish, water conditions, depth, tides, other species to catch, and general lodge amenities. Then there’s the basic list of lodge factors: budget, quality, experience, fish catching success and location.
Fishing at Yakutat Lodge
At Yakutat Lodge, we’ve got a number of halibut fishing positives on our side. Generally speaking, we fish at shallow depths (100- to 200 feet) in usually calm seas, and have a very short boat ride to the fish (inside 20 miles). Tide changes are moderate and we’ve also got lingcod, rockfish and salmon to catch. Our Alaska halibut fishing lodge offers meals, accommodations and guided angling, as well as a full service bar.
One of the things that sets us apart from some Alaska halibut fishing lodge options is our freshwater program. We fish the Situk River from April through September. It’s recognized as the best steelhead river in Alaska and also gets healthy runs of pink, sockeye and silver salmon. So guests of Yakutat Lodge can fish both in the saltwater and in the freshwater.
Experienced Capitains, fillet service and more!
Every good Alaska halibut fishing lodge has experienced captains that know how to catch fish. Our captains have fished these waters for a very long time. They have an excellent track record and rarely fail to catch quality fish.
After an action packed day on the water, your catch will be filleted, vacuum packed and frozen. On departure day, your fillets will be boxed up to bring home. Not only will you experience the adrenaline rush of catching a powerful halibut, you’ll also enjoy the pleasure of eating it.
One flight from Seattle
Another benefit to our location is its proximity to Seattle. Daily jet service from Seattle brings anglers to Yakutat. It’s possible to jump on the morning flight from Seattle and be fishing for halibut on a half day charter in the afternoon. Find Yakutat airport details here.
Add up all these factors and it’s easy to see why Yakutat Lodge is one of the best Alaska halibut fishing lodge options. Our clients love coming back year after year. Yakutat Lodge fills up fast for all the reasons shown above, so don’t delay booking for 2024.
