The Kenai Peninsula
offers some excellent opportunities for native steelhead fishing.
There are absolutely no stocked steelhead in this part of Alaska.
These lunkers are all natural!
The Kasilof River
has the potential for steelhead in both spring and fall. Since the
Kasilof is primarily glacial fed and therefore very silty, this is
primarily a bait or lure fishery.
Further south on
the Kenai Peninsula, there are three rivers which offer a variety of
habitats for steelhead fishing. These rivers are: Deep Creek,
Ninilchik, and Anchor. All three of these rivers are not navigable
by boat; therefore, this is strictly wading fishing. Also, all
three of these rivers are strictly fly-fishing only during steelhead
season. Despite this, it is not unusual for anglers to catch
several steelhead or more in a day when fishing is good. Steelhead
fishing in these three rivers is all catch and release!
We offer guided
drift boat steelhead fishing charters on the Kasilof River. We
offer guided walk-in steelhead fishing charters on the Deep Creek,
Ninilchik, and Anchor Rivers.
