Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Report- July 29, 2014

The weather came in full force today with constant downpours and 15-20 mph winds blowing through the channels. With the wind being like it was, many of the guests came in a bit early not wanting to battle the swells. The day still proved successful with a variety of salmon and loads of rockfish being caught by the guests.

Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Report- July 28, 2014

We had what they call here in SE 'liquid sunshine' and quite a bit of it! The usual SE Alaskan weather will be sticking around for a couple of day so expect some wet & soggy fish pictures! The fishing is still productive as ever and the Salmon that are hitting the dock are really bright and beautiful looking fish. The Halibut bite has been on the slow side so searching them out has been some work. Check 'em out!!

Yes Bay Lodge Fishing Report- July 24, 2014

It seems that there is another wave of Kings running through because the boats are coming back with some great fish! Along with a 17# Ling hitting the dock, it was definitely a productive day out on the water for the guests. The weather has become the typical rainy and gloomy SE weather but nothing can stop our die hard fisherman (and woman) from getting their rods bent and the lines tight!
