Icy Bay Lodge was started in 2005 by Pete Grimm. Like so many others, Pete first fished Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula in the 80's. After his first visit he was hooked, and sought out a more remote place that he could enjoy.
Icy Bay Lodge has exclusive access to untouched runs of Coho Salmon, in one of the most beautifully rugged ecosystems in the world. Don't plan on seeing other fishing boats or guide services during your stay with us, because there aren't any. In fact, the closest lodge is 60 miles away, and the nearest town, Yakutat, is 65 miles.
National Geographic labelled Icy Bay one of the 10 treasures of the world , and truly lives up to its reputation. Mt. St. Elias, 18 008' tall, rising right from the ocean. The Saint Elias mountain range is the worlds tallest coastal mountain range, and the scenery here is absolutely breathtaking.
Icy Bay is a body of water in southeast Alaska, formed in the last 100 years by the rapid retreat of the Guyot, Yahtse, and Tyndall Glacier Glaciers. It is part of the Wrangell-Saint Elias Wilderness. At the beginning of the 20th century, the bay entrance was permanently blocked by a giant tidewater glacier face that calved icebergs directly into the Gulf of Alaska. A century-long glacial retreat has opened a bay more than 30 miles long.
