Yukutat, Alaska is lodged between the Kluane National Park and Reserve of Canada and the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Alaska. The town sits right on the Gulf of Alaska. The lodge is easy to access as Yukutat has an airport and the lodge sits right between the airport and the town.

The advantage of fishing is the amazing amounts of options. You can drift fish down a 14-mile section of the Situk River where you can find outstanding Steelhead and Salmon Fishing from Spring through Fall. You can charter a Saltwater Halibut and Salmon trip right through the lodge with Captain Dave. The bonus here is that you also end up with nice rooms, comfortable beds
