Fall Steelhead - AK/BC
Ok. Its time to check one off the bucket list... I'm planning a road trip from Alaska to BC chasing fall steelhead in mid-October through late November.
As of now, I'm thinking of taking the AMH ferry from Whittier, AK to Prince Rupert, BC... fishing POW Island, Skeena, and elsewhere. Exact destinations will reveal themselves in time... what I'm looking for here are some ideas, suggestions, and hopefully some contacts for future fishing buddies.
I've worked in AK as a saltwater halibut/salmon guide for the past six summers. In the fall, I usually drop off the radar and go trout bumming on the Kenai and the occasional trip to Bristol Bay waters. This year, I want to take my old dog for what might be our last great road trip together... I've got the gear, the truck and camper, and possibly a pontoon boat or inflatable kayak. I'm a USCG licensed mariner, class V boater, and wilderness savvy. I'm just looking for some natural beauty, quality fishing, and good company.
thanks and tight lines, everyone!
