Well the Steelhead season is over now, with only a few stragglers left to play with. Nearly 6,000 for the year.
Reds are showing up now, with 1,000 fish over the weir last night, and also 5 big kings. Was a bit slow for Steelhead due to low water conditions and unusually warm spring weather, but unlike Steelhead the Sockeye don’t mind a little bit of low water to make their run upriver, and they are on the move now.
We are looking forward to good Sockeye season and then into a great Pink and Silver season. There are also large numbers of Dollies in the river during the Salmon runs.
Halibut, Ling-cod, and Kings continue to produce in the Salt water, with a wide variety of rock fish including Yellow Eye.
If you have not made a reservation at Yakutat Lodge for world class Sockeye and Silver fishing, then this is the time before we fill up. June is a great month for Sockeye fishing before the crowds come in July. We have space available through the next couple months. Looking forward to hearing from you

Good luck out there;
