Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Report-July 21, 2014

It is hard to believe that we are half way done with our summer season as it is flying by! As you all know, we have slowed down a bit as far as our guest numbers but the folks that are here are coming back with good hauls of fish. The Halibut & Salmon bite has been consistent along with calm conditions to complement the fishing day. Check out the day here at Yes Bay Lodge!

Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Report-July 20, 2014

A successful trip for the families that went out day bringing back some heavy halibut along with some great variety of salmon and rockfish. The morning started out pretty crummy with some heavy rain but the afternoon cleared up to be pretty nice with high clouds and no wind. Check out today's pics!

Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Report-June 19, 2014

Fishing was good for the few boats that went out for the day. We are running at small numbers so everyone is recharging their batteries for the next big push that we are going to have. It was great to see all the Spec Materials group have a epic time with the fishing and the all around experience here at Yes Bay Lodge.

Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Report-July 18, 2014

Finally a change of weather here in SE Alaska with some cooling rain and cloud cover. With the rain comes active fishing so the salmon were in the high numbers comparable to the last week. The Pinks & Chums are in full force along with a few Kings still out there to be caught. The guys had a fantastic last day and overall trip here at Yes Bay Lodge. The total weight that they took home was a total of over 600 pounds of fileted and processed fish...BOXES UPON BOXES!! Check out the eventful past week here at the lodge!!!

Supposedly it will be the last day of this warm weather and the rain will be moving in! The first day for the Spec Building Materials group was very productive and full of action on the line. It is the first day so the fishing is just beginning to heat up for the group...

Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Report-July 15, 2014

When bets start to get placed it definitely makes things interesting especially when the difference comes out to be 3 ounces! The Spec Materials group had a great last day with the fishing and once again the weather. The second wave will be arriving this evening so the pics will be worth checking out for the next couple of days. We expect a break in this clear weather on Thursday with the coming rain so hopefully it gets the next wave of salmon running strong.
