    Default AK steel head

    I have caught more halibut this year than ever before (not that Iím complaining, just want to try something new). So what I want to know is, are there any somewhat easily accessible steelhead fishing areas? (F-350, quad, 22' semi V with inboard jet) I have never gone after these critters up here. Thanks for any advice.

    Hit up the Anchor or Deep Creek in October and November.
    Steelhead fishing is not for fair weather fishermen!!!

    Think Drifter may have meant September-October.... Novermber is really only available in warm falls... These rivers typically freeze from the bottom up, this can start to happen in early October.

    Yeah sorry. Mid September until freeze up.
    Frazzle ice is a problem when the temps dip into the single digits at night.
    Frazzle ice is like slush that forms on the stream bottom. It ends up breaking free and flows down the river as slush, making it tough for you to get your bait down to the fish.

    Anchor ice is a real pain in the *****, it forms when the water is supercooled (31 degree's F) due to very cold air temps and lack of surface ice. It also can be very deadly to fish as the semi bouyant ice shards can damage their gills.
