    Default Steelhead

    Looking for some steelhead advice on timing/spots. I know they'll be here soon but not sure where to fish for them. Been kicking some salmon butt all summer, looking for something else to catch.

    I have the Flyfishers guide to Alaska and it mentions Deep Creek, Ninilchik River and the Anchor River. I just don't know when they come in. Crooked Creek might have them as well. We accidentally caught one in the Kasilof in June where Crooked Creek runs into it. That's all I know.

    I'm sorry, there are no steelhead in Alaska.

    I have always had good luck on the Anchor in September and it gets even better in to October.

    I would think the same time frame for Deep Creek and Ninilchik (for some reason I have not fished these rivers yet, maybe this year)

    Thanks for the responses. I wouldn't be able to make it to Situk. I'm stationed in Anchorage and it's kinda hard to make it that far. Looking for places in Anchorage bowl/kenai penn. I've heard anchor, deep, an ninilchik have some steelhead. Any place else? I was thinking oct-sept was the rum but wasn't exactly sure. Would really like to target some steely's this fall.
