The Yakutat Lodge
Yakutat Lodge provides full-service lodging, meals, guided fishing, vehicles and rental boats. They offer three different locations for guests: The Big House on the Bay, Yakutat Lodge on the Bay and Yakutat Lodge. Their restaurant, lodge and office are conveniently located at the airport, so getting there and checking in are easy. They are open from April through September beginning with the steelhead run in the spring and fishing for silvers well through the end of September or beginning of October.
Yakutat Lodge offers guided and unguided freshwater fishing on the world-class Situk River for steelhead, sockeye salmon, coho salmon and Dolly Varden char. They also offer fully-guided saltwater charters where anglers can catch halibut, lingcod, rockfish, as well as Chinook and coho salmon. Saltwater fishing is done within 10 miles of their private dock, and the water is usually calm. The ride to the fishing grounds is quick, and scenic, and the bottom fishing is usually in 150 feet of water or less. The breathtaking views in Yakutat are some of the most incredible in all of Alaska.
The Situk is a world-class river, and part of the experience is a 14-mile drift-boat ride down the river. It twists and turns through old-growth forest, and viewing animals like moose, bear and eagles is part of the adventure. Their guides are top-notch and have many years of experience. The staff aims to help make your trip memorable in every aspect, the restaurant serves good food, and the bar offers a wide selection of beverages.
