Why We Like It
Thanks Alaska offers some of the most unique steelhead fishing on the planet. Opportunities are plentiful for bright, spring-run wild fish ranging between 8 and 14 pounds and some that grow much larger (their record measured 42 inches long). The 17-million-acre Tongass National Forest offers hundreds of these wildly remote steelhead-bearing streams, and the Hawkeye II vessel provides quick and comfortable access to dozens of these waters along the Southeast Alaska’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, lingcod and Pacific cod right off the stern.
