Several groups here at the Yakutat Lodge have experienced some of the best and biggest Sockeye in years. We are all getting 10 and 11 pound fish on a daily basis. The counts are not high, but the fish are hanging in the river, and making it a great fishery. Most of the days are seeing the clients getting limits by 10 am and then just having fun with Jack Kings and Dolly Varden throughout the system. The Jack Kings this year are huge, averaging about 4 pounds and exactly 20 inches. Great little kings for sure!. Here are pics from the last 2 weeks. I arrived back from vacation on the 8th of July, and have been on the river since I got off the plane. I will try to update more often from here on out.

The Altman’s:

I can’t say enough of about this father and son’s combo. Absolutely the best of the best clients.

I would have more pics of this group, but one of them kinda deleted all the pics before the last day. Bummer.

Good luck out there.
