Sockeye Salmon are continuing to make a push up river. There are nearly 50,000 fish now through the Situk river weir, which has in turn allowed fish and game to raise the limit back to 3 fish per day in fresh for the sport angler. Pink Salmon are now also on the move and over 10.000 have passed through the weir the last week. There are also thousands of Dollie Varden char in the system for those that like a little variety.
The river has just shot up from recent large rainfalls. This is will push the pinks up river and make room for the incoming Coho Salmon. Look for this higher water event to be the catalyst to the Silver season. Continue reading “Yakutat Lodge Fishing Report | July 30, 2019”
The 2019 season has started with a bang!
The river is producing mass amounts of Steelhead all throughout the River system. The low water has given way to rain and snow, bringing those water levels back up to good fishable levels. The weather has kept the campers away and the main push of Spring fish has begun. Fresh spring fish are plentiful!
Call and book now before they’re all gone. Weather Forecasts are looking promising with rain and snow giving way to warmer weather and sunny skies into the weekend. Saltwater fishing is picking up with some good reports on Halibut and there are some Kings being caught on a daily basis. With the better weather it should only get better. Stop on in and say Hi, grab a beer and a burger. Tight Lines.

River fishing continues to be tough due to the low water and sunny skies. Rain is forecast for this week and we are keeping our fingers crossed that it will be enough to raise the water levels. Click here to view the weather forecast.
Taiwah Creek and the Lost River are producing fish on the incoming tides, but not a super hot bite. The ocean fishing is still producing good numbers of halibut and some silver salmon also. Ling Cod and rockfish are also still being caught in decent numbers.

The weather is absolutely beautiful, but that is creating a low clear water scenario that is making the river fishing a little more difficult than usual. Large numbers of fish are arriving on every tide and the fishing seems to be best on those fresh fish entering the system before they are trapped in the low water upriver. With no significant rain in the immediate forecast, the fishing will continue to more difficult, but working for the fish sometimes is more rewarding for the fisherman.
Ocean fishing has been great. Large halibut and good numbers of Silver Salmon are still being caught on a daily basis, along with rockfish and Lingcod. Flat-water conditions have made the ocean the place to be the last couple weeks and look to continue for the rest of the month.

It doesn’t get better than this!
Silver salmon have filled up the Situk River and continue to come in with every incoming tide. Fishing has been really good for about a month now. All the guides are in full swing and clients are coming back with sore arms.
Ocean fishing has also been spectacular for halibut and rockfish, with many 100 lb halibut caught this season, and a couple in the 200 lb range. Weather could not be better, with sunny skies for the next 10 days it’s going to be a great time to be in Yakutat fishing. We are excited to show our guests a great time.

All the Steelhead have now vacated the river for the arrival of the Sockeye run.
Although it’s been a slow start for the Sockeye, last night we had our first decent push over the weir. We have been catching a few in the lower end now for about a week, but they were not migrating up the river, but with a good amount of rain the last couple of days the fish seem to be on the move. We’re looking forward to a great Sockeye season this year.
Bookings still available for the 2018 season and we would love to host you.

Steelhead season is winding down. It was a great success and I wish to thank all of the Yakutat lodge guests that made it up fish with us this season.
There is still some fresh Steelhead coming in on the tides, but significantly less than a couple weeks ago, so fishing has slowed, but we are still getting decent numbers hooked up.
We are gearing up for the start of Sockeye season and excited and waiting to see the first bunch come in.
We have openings for June and July still if you want to come catch some of the most explosive fish in Alaska. To book contact email@example.com
or call 1-800-YAKUTAT (925-8828).

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.
We have openings available through may and the fishing should continue to be good throughout the month.
