Well it has been a week now since I arrived in Yakutat to guide for Yakutat Lodge again. The lodge is up an running smoothly, and the fishing is very good right now and looking to get even better as the month comes to an end. I have taken 2 sets of clients down the river so far, and they have landed nearly a hundred fish and hooked many more. Bud Gore returned for 5 days of Sun and great fishing. He absolutely killed it this year, with another 40” Spring Steel Buck.
Tommy is also kicking butt with Yakutat Lodge clients in the boat. He has been out every day I have, and the numbers are very good for him also.
We are mainly using float and jigs, or the aeropuff. (Multi colored yarnee). Those two methods are the key to success here. Although other methods do work for some, those methods very often have a learning curve that is to high to teach clients in one day.
If you have any want to catch huge Steelhead by the handfuls, then Yakutat Lodge is the place to be for the next month. We also have Sockeye just around the corner in June, and they are the best fighting Salmon there is.
Ok so here is the fish porn you are waiting for from the best pics of the week.… >>::::::>
