The fishing around Yes Bay Lodge has been defined as an almost religious experience! Yes Bay sits in a very unique location with boat rides to prime fishing spots around 20-25 minutes at the most. Sometimes the best spot is right at the mouth of the Bay an under 10 minute ride. Your professional guide will know what species are running and where to give you the most opportunity to get your limit. We fish for 4 species of salmon, halibut and ling cod and several species of nice rock fish. We are also the only Alaska Lodge that features two fisherman per boat, this assures you the personal attention that Yes Bay Lodge is famous for!
Yes Bay Lodge and their Guides use custom built, canopy covered Olympic boats. At twenty feet in length and powered by 90 HP Yamaha four strokes, they are designed for your comfort and fishing efficiency. An 8 HP Yamaha kicker engine is used for trolling.
Your Guide will be featuring Lamiglas rods and smooth, dependable Penn reels for trolling. Stout Lamiglas halibut rods and Penn reels are the tools you’ll use for large bottom fish. With only 2 guests per boat/guide you are assured your ideal fishing adventure with your Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Guide.
New in 2008, the Lodge added a beautiful 27 foot Boston Whaler. Powered by twin 250 Hp Yamaha outboards, it can get you to the fishing grounds in a hurry and in comfort. This boat is designed to fish up to four anglers and can carry up to 6 people for daily sightseeing trips. It is great for families with children as well.
New in 2014 we started replacing our fleet of boats and we now have 5 aluminum, hardtop boats for your fishing comfort. They are custom built for us and the ultimate 2 person fishing machine.
Word from the Lodge they are comfortable, fast and plenty fishy!! Look for some more pictures of them in action later in the season - they are too busy out catching fish for new pictures! I have been promised I will have them before this goes live!
