    Default Yakutat fly out

    I'm taking my son to Yakutat July 20, we are taking a fly out to the Akwe river. any one ever been there? any advice on tackle. we both have spinning rods and I also fly fish. I t will be a good trip for my son, it will give him a chance to get his act togather after being disabled in Iraq. thanks for any advice.........Ron

    I have spent a lot of time on the Italio which is close by. It is beautiful. Be sure to take some form of bear protection. The bears in the area are huge. I can't speak much about fishing advice, but you will enjoy the area.

    Just ask your pilot or the folks at the lodge what to use.

    Around July 20 on the Akwe, you'll see mainly sockeyes and pinks, so you can adjust your tackle for those species.

    If you were to arrange for a jetboat ride upriver (via Hippy John or someone else), you would find some very good cutthroat trout fishing.
