During the 18th and 19th centuries, English, French, Spanish and Russian explorers visited the region. The Russian-American Company built a fort in Yakutat in the 1790’s.



The Stimson Lumber Company built a cannery, sawmill, store and a railroad for fish access early in 1903. The 12-mile railroad was the only railroad in the U.S. built to carry raw fish.

During WWII, the US moved in nearly 10,000 troops to protect Yakutat. The airfield and huge hangers remain in use today as the commercial Yakutat airport.



In 2007, the Leonard's Landing Lodge building caught fire. It was the biggest fire to hit the small Southeast fishing village in recent years.

Outstanding halibut and salmon fishing. Our waterfront cabin looks out at Yakutat Bay with the sunset in the distance. The fishing was excellent! Some days with limits of 6 coho salmon in the Bay. Some days with 80 pound halibut plus limits of ling cod.

I have been fishing Alaska for over 30 years and Leonard’s Landing Lodge is the most authentic Alaska adventure you can have. The accommodations are great. Julie and staff are wonderful and eagerly assist you for all your adventures. Fishing, sight seeing, and hiking are some of the great things you can do. The area is absolutely beautiful. Don’t miss the Hubbard glacier. Can’t rate it high enough.

If you want a consistent relaxing home base to explore from this is it. The dock is feet away if you are hiring ocean charters or renting a boat yourself. They clean, package and flash freeze your fish for a fair price too. Access to the Situk River top and bottom is close minutes away if you rentad a car too. Lenord's staff is accommodating, the rooms are clean and well kept.
