The Situk River hosts the largest population of wild steelhead in Alaska.

The pristine crystal-clear river provides the most spectacular arena for this simultaneously bountiful and elusive quarry. Situk River steelhead average about 10- to 12 pounds and are packed with explosive fury! Fish in the 16- to 22-pound range are not uncommon. This catch-and-release fishery is being rewarded with record runs. Anglers on guided float trips (roughly 14 miles) can expect to hook up with an average of 6- to 10 fish and to land at least 3- or 4 fish in a day. It’s not unusual for experienced anglers to do 2- to 3 times as well. Miles and miles of excellent fly fishing water, sensational runs and pools, make this a steelhead fishing paradise for guests of Yakutat Lodge.

Not only does the Situk River offer the best steelhead fishing in Alaska, it is also home to a prolific sockeye and silver fishery that guests enjoy for harvest.
