Yes Bay Lodge
Yes Bay Lodge lies fifty miles north of Ketchikan in southern Southeast Alaska. Overlooking the spectacular view of the Bay and pristine Wolverine Creek, the Lodge is nestled in the heart of The Tongass National Forest, one of the most magnificent places to visit in Alaska.
The myriad of lakes, streams and rivers located within a short distance of the lodge, offer some of the finest trout and Dolly Varden fishing available in Southeast Alaska, while the steelhead fishing is world-class. For the salt water angler, there are five species of Salmon that spawn in the areas, including King, Silver, Sockeye, Pink and Chum. In addition to the plentiful Salmon, guests may opt to bottom fish for Halibut, Rockfish, and Lingcod.
Construction of the lodge building began in the mid-1950s and was purchased in 1977 by Art and Marlys Hack, who transformed it into one of Southeast Alaska’s first successful sport fishing lodges. Now their son, Kevin, runs the lodge in the Hack Family tradition.
