Yakutat Fishing Report

April 29, 2024


Steelhead Trout

Steelhead fishing is good right now on the Situk River. Water levels are low at 118 cfs, making boating a little skinny, and the fish a little skiddish, but makes walking along and wading in the river easy. Rain is in the forecast this weekend which should push some more fish into the river. Water temps are well above average which would indicate earlier run timing.


King Salmon

Sportfishing for king salmon is open in Yakutat area marine waters. Staff have received reports of some kings being caught out front, but its still quiet in the bay. Most anglers troll spoons or herring behind a flasher.


Halibut fishing is decent right now with some nice fish being brought in. Fishing for halibut should improve over the next couple of months.


Lingcod fishing is closed until May 16th.


Fishing for rockfish should be excellent in the Yakutat area.
