Alaska Halibut Fishing & Salmon Fishing

Yakutat Bay has the best halibut fishing in the world.

The big halibut are often found in 50-150 feet of water just 45 minutes from the dock. The best halibut fishing is from April through August, but it has been surprisingly good throughout the season. Ling cod and rock fish are often caught as well.

Salmon Fishing

Chinook or King Salmon can come as early as late May and continue into almost the end of July. Coho or Silver Salmon arrive from the beginning of August and will stay around until almost the end of September. The limit is 6 per day and it is not unheard of to see a boat of 3 bring in their limit of 18 fish. Both Coho and Chinook can be reached by renting our Ocean Skiffs. They are a 16 foot Lund with a 25 hp Yamaha and can be rented from 7 am to 7 pm daily.

Which ever method you choose to saltwater fish, charter or rental skiff, you will find that Yakutat fishing is second to none.

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.
