Alaska is known as one of the top angling destinations in the world because of the incredible Salmon runs, bountiful Rainbow Trout, record Halibut and famed Crab fishing to name a few. The fishing opportunities are endless and the quality no matter where you go and what you fish for is, in our opinion, unmatched. Steelhead fishing in Alaska is no exception. In fact, we believe it to be the all around best in the world. Whether it be the sheer numbers of fish, diverse angling opportunities or the low fishing pressure, we are confident that you will agree that this is the premier steelhead destination for anglers of all ages and abilities. Although our main focus is steelhead most of our season we also target Silver Salmon, Dolly Varden & Rainbow Trout. Learn more about the fishing here.
Depart from your preferred airport and arrive in Anchorage, AK. Prior to arriving, you will need to book your flight from Anchorage to Kenai, AK through Grant Aviation or Ravn Alaska. You are able to book online or call either companies representatives, they are very helpful and will assist you with purchasing the proper flight based on your arrival time in Anchorage. These flights are affordable, typically around $135. The flight to Kenai is roughly 20 minutes and offers breathtaking scenery. An Alaska Steelhead Co. host will be there to greet you upon your arrival to the Kenai airport! While in Kenai, you are able to make a quick stop at the liquor store and/or pick up anything you forgot to pack. You and your host will then make the scenic 40 or 60 minute drive to one of our teo lodges and cabins.
As proud as we are to provide world class fishing, we are just as proud to offer our guests world class lodging. The Alaska Steelhead Co. offers 5 star rated accommodations centrally located to all the rivers we fish. Both of our lodges and guest cabins are perched on the edge of a 200 ft. bluff overlooking Cook Inlet, glaciers, and the famed active volcanoes Redoubt, Iliamna, Spur and Augustine. The views are absolutely breathtaking morning, day and night. There is nothing better than closing an incredible day of fishing by watching one of the most beautiful sunsets one can ever see!
Meals are very important to us at The Alaska Steelhead Company. Chef Felix Barron begins the day before sunrise by preparing good, strong coffee and a hearty breakfast. Everyone then leaves stocked for the day with a custom-packed shore-side lunch, as well as plenty of snacks and drinks to keep you going. On the colder days Chef Felix makes sure you have a thermos of soup and the guides prepare coffee, hot cider and hot chocolate. Feel free to bring a flask as well…you’ve got to love a hot cider with a little splash of whiskey to warm you up! Expect the dinners to be local and fresh, consisting of sushi, scallops, shrimp, halibut, salmon, king crab, clams, oysters, caribou, beef, just to name “a few”. We spare no expense on the finest Alaskan fare there is to offer. Chef Felix is always more than happy to accommodate any dietary needs or even just a request for a specific craving!
