Welcome to 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, the largest temperate rain forest on Earth. For over 40 years, the Hack family has been welcoming guests to Yes Bay Lodge. Unlike most fishing resorts in the state, Yes Bay Lodge is able to offer guests a wide range of freshwater and saltwater fishing, due to its’ unique location. 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, you may opt to bottom fish for Halibut, Rockfish, and Lingcod.
An All-Inclusive Premier Fishing Lodge
There are hiking trails throughout the rainforest surrounding the lodge, from moderate to strenuous. Guided sightseeing tours lead to McDonald Lake, Wolverine Creek, the old cannery, and soothing hot springs. There are boat rides available to Bailey Bay, Shrimp Bay, Orchard Lake and Lake Shelokum as well as the Neets Bay Hatchery where you can get up close and personal with both brown and black bears. Yes Bay Lodge can also arrange flight tours where you may also visit the bear observatory at Anan Creek, take a floatplane tour of the Misty Fjords National Monument, or fly out to one of the many fresh water lakes or rivers for some awesome freshwater fishing.
What Yes Bay Lodge Clients Have To Say...
Jay and I had a great fishing trip at Yes Bay Lodge. The boat trip to Ketchikan was the best with clear skys, calm waters and "captain" Dewey was a great conversationalist. He gave us information regarding the submarine base that seemed strange that such a "thing" existed so close to town. As we approached Ketchikan, two whales performed very nicely. Your dock crew, Tina, was her very cheerful self.

I had an awesome time at the lodge. You guys were great. I forgot to ask about the recipe for the Halibut we had served to us. Is there any way you could get that for me? Going to leave some positive reviews online for you guys...just haven't yet but I will. Still can't believe how you remember everyone's names like that.
