Steelhead on the Situk River
The Situk River, a 17-mile stretch of water from Situk Lake to Yakutat Bay and the Pacific Ocean has the best Steelhead fishing in the world, hands down. The notoriously difficult, smart, and strong fighting fish pour into the Situk by the thousands starting every year in late March to spawn. Book a stay at the Yakutat Lodge and their expert guides will show you the intricacies and techniques needed to land one of these beautifully colored fish on the fly. All Steelhead fishing on the Situk is catch and release, so don't expect to bring home a bunch of meat (if that's what you're looking for try the Situk during the Coho Salmon run in September). Here, it's all about the sport.
