Alaska Saltwater Lodge in Yakutat, Alaska
HALIBUT GALORE AND A WHOLE LOT MORE ARE AVAILABLE ONLY A SHORT JOURNEY FROM THE YAKUTAT LODGE’S OWN DOCK!
We are the main saltwater lodge in Yakutat with three lodging choices: The Big House, Cabins by the Bay and The Airport Hotel.
Alaska saltwater lodge trips often revolve around catching halibut, lingcod, rockfish and salmon. And at Yakutat Lodge we excel at doing just that. Not only are fish stocks healthy, but we are close to the fish, we can catch them in fairly shallow water in moderate current, and ocean conditions are generally benign. It’s a great combination for an off the charts Alaska saltwater lodge experience.
Our “Hooker Fleet” consists of the Happy Hookers III, IV and Madam Hooker which are the fish catchingest fleet in Yakutat. It’s quite common to land halibut over 100 pounds and fish over 200 pounds are caught from time to time too. That’s a big fish!
Our ocean boats are equipped with new fishing equipment and led by our top-notch professional skippers to ensure your safety as well as an opportunity to experience the highest quality saltwater fishing available. Our captains pick you up dockside right out from of our Cabins location. Upon your return, your catch is filleted, packaged and vacuum packed, and frozen for you right at our own dock and commercial fish-cleaning facility.
Yakutat’s ocean fishing is simply among the best in Alaska. We are the premier Alaska saltwater lodge. The Yakutat Bay and surrounding waters and spectacular mountains complemented by the world’s largest glaciers provide an arena of incredible beauty where mere words couldn’t do it justice. What’s even better is that you can balance your trip with a couple days of freshwater on the Situk River too for an Alaska fishing trip you’ll always remember.
Alaska saltwater lodge fishing
Fishing in Yakutat Bay means fishing mostly protected waters. The scenery is outrageous. It is truly some of the most breathtaking view in Alaska. The fishing is consistently good and most days bring widely smiling guests with stories of epic battles and fresh fillets to fill the fish boxes headed home.
HALIBUT, LINGCOD AND BLACK ROCKFISH FISHING
Halibut, lingcod, and black rockfish are staples of the Yakutat saltwater fishing scene. Our captains know how and where to target each species and will put you on the fish. Each of these species provides succulent white fillets, all delicious, with unique flavor and texture to each species.
KING SALMON AND SILVER SALMON FISHING
Kings are usually around in fishable numbers sometime in late April and early May and can continue to be good all the way into July. Our captains know how to troll for the largest of the five species of Pacific salmon. Coho start to show up in July and are going full bore by August. When they are spread out, our skippers troll, and when they are schooled up, often switch to mooching. Anglers usually experience plenty of action when the coho are in Yakutat Bay. Our full-service operation excels as an Alaska saltwater lodge.
