Alaska is known as one of the top angling destinations in the world because of the incredible salmon runs, gigantic 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, extremely low fishing pressure, or the abnormally gorgeous Fall weather, we are confident that you will agree that this is the premier steelhead destination for anglers of all ages and abilities.

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 a company by the name of Ravn Alaska. If you call Ravn, 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 $85. 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, most guests choose to purchase their fishing license, make a quick stop at the liquor store and/or pick up anything they forgot to pack. You and your host will then make the scenic 40 minute drive to the lodge 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. Our main lodge and four guest cabins are perched on the edge of a 200 ft. bluff overlooking Kachemak Bay, Cook Inlet, glaciers, and the famed active volcanoes Mt. Redoubt and Mt. Iliamna. The views are absolutely breathtaking morning, day and night. There is nothing better than closing an incredible day of steelhead fishing by watching one of the most beautiful sunsets one can ever see! Learn more about the lodging here.
Meals are very important to us at The Alaska Steelhead Company. Chefs Billy McMillan and Ben Piekarz begin 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, guides prepare coffee, hot cider and hot chocolate on the boats. 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. Our chefs are always more than happy to accommodate specific dietary needs or even just a request for a specific craving!
