Anglers and outdoor enthusiasts from around the world come to Glacier Bear Lodge each year to enjoy the splendors of the Alaska backcountry and to experience world-class saltwater fishing for giant halibut, lingcod, rockfish, and salmon. Yakutat boasts the highest average weight per halibut in the state while fishing in depths in most cases of under 100 feet.
Yakutat’s Situk River is internationally known as one of the very best steelhead rivers in the world. Not only is the fishing superb for both fly fishermen and spin casters, but the 14-mile drift is a spectacle that dreams are made of. It also hosts good numbers of sockeye, pink, and coho salmon. Our guides are some of the best in the business and will make sure that you experience an Alaskan trip to truly remember!
The Malaspina Glacier, the largest piedmont glacier in North America, and Hubbard Glacier, the largest tidewater glacier in North America are easily accessible from Yakutat by boat. The Hubbard Glacier is located about 30 miles north off the coast of Yakutat and is by far one of Alaska’s most exciting natural treasures. Our ocean vessels are both well-equipped to get you up close and personal and can be coupled with a little fishing on the way back to the dock.
