    Default Kasilof Steelhead

    It was a little snowing yesterday, but the Kasilof from the lake down to the sterling bridge is a great place for Steelhead from the drift boat.
    No pressure as most folks don't know about this fall fishery..
    good action and great wild fish..

    I've been contemplating that trip, or the anchor.....are they running yet?

    I leave here for a few weeks, was hoping to come down after that, be early to mid nov.

    Question

    That is above Crooked Creek, are there still any there? Seems that that was a spring time fishery.

    That fishery will certainly be pressured if you keep posting threads like this.

    Stellies start running the anchor in late august
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default Fishing is slow!

    Not alot of fish in yet. Give it a month and it should pick up!
    Hit the kenai for rainbows tons of them and they are feeding like crazy.
    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

    Default Steelhead

    The steelhead fishing on the Anchor and Deep Creek has been pretty good.
    There seems to be quite the crowds on the weekends, which can be annoying, but if you hike up a bit and go where others won't the fishing is better and you don't see many folks. I am going to Deep Creek and fishing the entire weekend, I'll update after the weekend.



    I am curious, I am thinking about opening up our lodging for steelhead fishermen during Oct and Nov. What I am curious about is the amount of interest there would be for lodging during these months? Any feedback is appreciated.

    Ditto on the Kasilof being pretty slow so far this fall. the anchor on the otherhand has been producing pretty darn well when you hit the holes before the crowds.

    as nice as it would be.....opening a lodge would only bring more people in!!! So it's a catch 22.....

    build lodge, worse fishing potential, nothing different then anywhere any other river on the roadsystem has gone.....

    Go for it, but be prepared to reap what you sew, hopefully it's a good thing.

    There's already way too many people fishing the peninsula streams for steelhead. Having a warm place to stay in October and November will just let the wannabes who don't live down here fish later in the year.

    Please Remember that Lower Pennisula streams are catch and release only and that it is illegal to remove a steelhead from the water in those systems.

    Default Kasilof.

    Fished it a few days ago,,,, One Steelhead, one Siver one Rainbow.
    Not hot by any means.What was nice was the quietness of it all, just a few locals having fun. Maybe the Kenai next week?
