Why We Like It
Thanks Alaska offers some of the most unique steelhead fishing on the planet with plenty of shots at bright, spring-run wild fish ranging between eight and 14 pounds, and some that grow much larger (our personal record measured 42 inches long). The 17-million-acre Tongass National Forest offers more than 200 of these wildly remote steelhead bearing streams and the Hawkeye II provides quick and comfortable access to dozens of these waters along the central-southeast’s legendary Inside Passage. You won’t see other anglers on the water here, which means no racing to the best runs. This is remote steelhead fishing at its finest. When not fishing steelhead, anglers kick back on the Hawkeye II to trade stories and dine . . . or they fish for halibut, salmon, and cod, right off the stern.
