Well there are some days in Yakutat, that are just plain beautiful. Today was one of those days.The sun was out, and skies stayed clear through out the day. Most important of all, the fishing was great. For the last 5 days I have been fishing 2 holes, and picking up limits before the second hole is worn out. It has been real good fishing. The Silvers are still hitting good, and coming up the river in good numbers. The commercial netting season on the Situk is also yielding good numbers of fish. The rain is due back tomorrow, so we will see what happens. Here are some fish from today. Also some pics of Matt, another guide here at the lodge. He worked hard for this fish, chasing it down river about 150 yards, through stumps and snags, he was able to get the boat in the right place and get this large Silver to the bank without incident. Great job by a great guide. Way to go Matt!!
Good luck out there!!
Well the river is up, and the fish are on the move. The last 4 days have been spent with two of the most pleasant fisherman I have had the pleasure of fishing with. Although there were some fish lost to bad hook sets, when it counted they came through with flying colors. The fish are in good now, and catching these bright fish is a ton of fun. If you want some of the biggest silvers in Alaska, this is the place to be right now.
Good luck out there.
Too busy to write tonight.
Here are some pics from the last couple days. Amanda and I floated one day, and had a great time. Also the McMillen’s from the Yakutat Lodge.
Fishing is real good this year, and the Silvers are big.
