Being Alaska’s greatest untapped resource, back dropped by the largest coastal mountain range in the world, Yakutat’s fishery is summed up in two words: Awe Inspiring. Our fish to people ratio is the highest in Alaska. We are perched on the North Shore of the Pacific Ocean. Yakutat is the northern most community in Southeast Alaska. What sets us apart from the rest of Southeast Alaska is that we are in the I.P.H.C. zone 3-A. We have a limit of two fish per day with regulations updated yearly, please call for current regulations. That means more fish for you with less angling time. Novice to know-it-all, we continue to deliver memories of a lifetime.
The fishing grounds are at the mouth of Yakutat Bay. The mouth of the bay is about 17 miles wide. We fish close to home. That means more fishing time for you. We fish where the fish are, and are willing to go the extra mile for you. Millennia ago the face of the Hubbard Glacier rested at the mouth of Yakutat Bay, pushing up a moraine. The result was a World Class Trophy fishing reef. It can be a lot of fun catching huge halibut in very productive holes less than 100 feet deep and so clear you can almost see the bottom.
Halibut, Salmon, Lings and other things are what we will be after. Yakutat fishing is kind of an insider’s club; we have our own corner of the state with not much fishing pressure. A lot of the time it feels like we have the whole ocean all to ourselves. The fishing here is “Off the Hook”. If you want a shot at a real trophy, fish here!
