Yes Bay Lodge sits along the coastal waters of the Southeast of Alaska. The lodge sits within the town of Ketchikan making it an easy access lodge for travelers. The lodge focuses on its family atmosphere and the superb fishing that occurs around Ketchikan, Alaska. One of the primary differences of this lodge from others is that their guide ratio is 2:1. Two guests per boat whereas other lodges and charters have four or six guests per boat.

Each of the rooms has a private bathroom with a tub-shower combo. Rooms are double occupancy and as such, they come with either a California King, Queen or two twin sized beds. There is a pool table in the great room. The food here is awesome. Expect beautiful food that is delicious. The wholesome appetizers and five-star dinners are outstanding. The lunches are hot and divine, and breakfast is not only good it is designed to power your entire day.

Fishing with Yes Bay Lodge

This is both a freshwater and saltwater fishing lodge, though the focus is usually on saltwater fish. The waters around Ketchikan are a prime staging ground for Salmon. The salmon are in a state of gorging as they stage in the calmer waters around the bay. Kings start the process in early May. The Sockeye follow soon after. By August, the Silvers are headed upriver. The summer fishing here represents four species of Pacific salmon. In addition to the Salmon are the halibut. Southeastern Alaska is a prime halibut habitat. The shorter continental shelf is an ideal location for halibut. Expect larger Halibut and a lot of Salmon.

Other Fishing at Yes Bay Lodge

All species of Rockfish are found here. Expect to fish for Red Snapper, Sea Bass, Cod, and if you are very lucky the tenacious Lingcod Freshwater fish include a number of species of Trout, such s the Rainbow and Cutthroat. You will also find Dolly Varden, which is a member of the char family. Dolly Varden are beautiful fish with brightly colored spots. All of these fish make excellent targets for sports fishermen. For those of you who want to try freshwater fishing, there is a stream that runs right outside of the lodge. It is a small creek that the salmon use. Where you find the salmon in freshwater, you find nice sized Rainbow Trout too. There are also plenty of nearby lakes that your guide can take you to on days when you want to focus on freshwater fishing.

If you are looking for a quaint, comfortable lodge with many options for fishing, then the Yes Bay Lodge is your ideal location.
