Details of Yes Bay Lodge, Alaska, Santa Barbara, CA, Alaska Fishing Trips Details for Yes Bay Lodge, Alaska

Typical Day


Unlike most lodges and resorts in the state, Yes Bay Lodge offers both fresh and saltwater fishing. The myriad lakes, streams, and rivers within a short distance of the Lodge offers some of the finest trout and Dolly Varden fishing available in Southeast Alaska. And the steelhead fishing is world class. McDonald Lake is within hiking distance, as are many of the streams and rivers. Fly-in fishing, although not part of the package, is available on request.

There are five species of salmon that spawn in the area, including Chum, Coho, Pink, King, and Sockeye, in addition to halibut, cod, rockfish and ling cod.

ITINERARY
As a guest of Yes Bay Lodge, you prepare your own itinerary. You may fish both fresh and saltwater during your stay - the choice is up to you. All excursions are fully guided, whether hiking to the lake or fishing from one of our boats. You'll find only two guests per boat for truly personal service. If you choose, a box lunch will be prepared for you to take on the water, or you may wish to come in for a hot lunch served in the dining room.

Yes Bay's 20' custom-built covered resort boats are equipped with the best and latest equipment, including depth and fish finders, downriggers, and the latest in graphite rods and reels. All the gear you need is provided for you.

Sleeping and meals


The Lodge offers first class accommodations with only your comfort in mind. Homestyle meals are prepared in our kitchen and served in the spacious dining room. The large windows afford a breathtaking view of Yes Bay.
After dinner, relax with your favorite cocktail, sitting before the fire in the lounge. You will enjoy the rustic decor: lining the walls are elk, moose, bear, a mountain goat, salmon and trout.

Accommodations for conferences, conventions, board meetings and sales incentive programs are available at the lodge.

THE LODGE Construction of the lodge building began in the mid-50's, originally to be used as a casino and cat house. However, it never opened for business, due to the fact that the Alaskan Terretory became a state, and the government was required to outlaw gambling and prostitution. The building was purchased in 1977 by Art and Marlys Hack, who transformed it into one of Southeast Alaska's first successful sportfishing lodges. Now their sons, Kevin and Bill, run the lodge, in the Hack Family tradition.

Guest Rooms: All guest rooms have a private bathroom. Based on double occupancy, rooms either have two twin beds or one queen sized bed.

Dining Room: The dining room seats 24 guests comfortably, and overlooks the beauty of Yes Bay.

GAME ROOM: Adjacent to the dining room and the gift shop, guests may enjoy a friendly game of pool or ping-pong.

GIFT SHOP: The gift shop offers souvenirs including caps, t-shirts, cookbooks, Alaskan handicrafts, and postcards.

CONFERENCE FACILITIES: The lodge offers a conference room, with slide projector and screen. Accommodations for conferences, conventions, board meetings, and sales incentive programs are available.

EXERCISE ROOM: Enjoy the view while maintaining your exercise regime in our exercise room overlooking the beautiful mouth of Yes Bay. Stationary bicycles, soloflex, nautilus, and treadmills are available for your use.

Policies & Restrictions


SALTWATER FISHING

Yes Bay Lodge offers its guests a variety of Alaskan experiences with an emphasis on saltwater fishing.

GEAR AND EQUIPMENT: The lodge operates 20 foot Olympic convertible soft top boats, seating two guests comfortably. The main running motors on each boat are Evinrude Outboard motors. All boats are equipped with Furuno graphs as well as downriggers. The lodge provides graphite rods with Penn reels for both salmon and bottom fishing.

freshwater fishing

In addition to saltwater fishing, Yes Bay Lodge offers freshwater "catch and release" fishing for dolly varden, cutthroat, and rainbow trout. From May through June, guests can experience world-class steelhead fishing in the Wolverine Creek, adjacent to the lodge. If you prefer visiting a variety of locations, there are several lakes and streams just a short hike or floatplane ride away. In cases where a floatplane is necessary, and additional charter fare will be required.

Flightseeing and freshwater trips conducted in the Tongass National Forest and are operated under the provisions of a permit issued by the United States Forest Service.

Your spin-casting gear is also provided by the lodge with both ultra-light and medium weight spin gear for all types of fishing.

Fly-Fishing Program
At Yes Bay Lodge, we outfit our fly fishing guests with Fenwick 5 weight equipment for trout and Lamiglass 8 weight Steelhead/ Salmon equipment. A limited supply of waders are available on a first come, first serve basis, in sizes ranging from men's shoe sizes 9-12.

HIKING: Take advantage of several hiking opportunities on nature trails through the rainforest surrounding the lodge. Be advised that all of these hikes are moderately to very strenuous. You will walk on slippery logs, and narrow bridges, and will climb over and around tree trunks.

* Wolverine Creek Trail: Hike this moderate trail to several fishing areas for steelhead, trout, and salmon.

* Tram Trail: Originally a tramway for the old salmon cannery, this popular trail will lead you to McDonald Lake, for trout and steelhead fishing.

* Forest Service Trail: This trail leads from the back of Yes Bay to meet up with the Wolverine Creek trail.

* Bailey Bay Trail: Take a boat ride to the end of Baily Bay to hike to the soothing hot springs. For the truly adventurous, continue along to Lake Shelokum for trout fishing.

* Shrimp Bay Trail: Boat to Shrimp Bay to see the majestic double waterfalls. Take a short hike up the trail to Orchard Lake for some trout fishing.Kayak the calm waters of the bay and enjoy communing with the Alaskan wilderness.

KAYAKING: Yes Bay Lodge provides single and two-man kayaks for both novice and experienced guests to enjoy. Prior to putting the kayaks in the water, novices will be introduced to water safety and basic kayak maneuvers. While paddling through protected waters, you may experience shoreside encounters with black and brown bear, or glide along with whales, seals, and otters.

Water Cycle: The lodge has recently added a water cycle to its equipment. A water cycle is similar to a kayak but is pedaled with your legs instead of using a paddle. The water cycle operates well in the saltwater and will maintain over 7 mph.
