Fall steelheading in Alaska. That’s not something you hear too much about and thus the reason opportunities to take on Alaskan steelhead are something special.
Certainly steelheaders look to the Pacific Northwest for the most prized steelheading opportunities, and in fact Alaska offers some of the world’s most extraordinary steelheading.
What makes the steelhead opportunities so great? First, anglers have the chance to take on one of the most treasured freshwater fish without encountering pressure. Second, Alaska offers some of the most impressive natural beauty in the world. And finally, certain areas of Alaska offer a high rate of success — something you don’t usually hear about a fish that is often regarded as “the fish of a thousand casts.”
Minturn Anglers presently offers fall steelheading trips to Alaska and proudly boasts their success rate, as they have found consistency with numbers and size, year after year.
According to Minturn Anglers, big number days and even anglers doubling up is not abnormal. And for anglers looking to swing for steel, there are plenty of opportunities to swing as well. And fish are often found with sea lice still on them!
An additional feature of the trip is what Minturn Anglers calls “the ultimate Steelhead Trip Insurance” as one of the main rivers they fish cannot blowout — something that can often disrupt a steelhead trip. In addition, the weather in Alaska this time of year can be pleasantly warm and there isn’t the mosquito problem that often plagues summer months.
