I am planning a steelhead trip this spring. I have been to POW island a few times before, just not for steelhead. In doing my research I have also found in Yakutat, the Situk river has amazing steelhead. I know the rivers in POW are very wadable, and doable on your own. I am wondering if anyone has fished both and can give me some advice?
Also, I have never been to the Karta river on POW. I hear it is great. I see no way of getting to it other than plane or boat. is that true? Not being from around there, I can't seem to find any plain boat rentals to get over there. Any suggestions on trying to get there for a day trip from either thorne bay or craig? that doesn't involve a $800 float plane ride?
any info you have is greatly appreciated.
