We were thinking about a trip to Yakutat AK, to fish the Situk River for spring steelhead. I have heard it can be an absolute zoo. My buddy from Juneau goes up every year to fish the tide flats…He won’t go up river at all, because its a full of people and some very nasty locals. I guess the tidel area gets crazy too . Can you give your input on the place. –Mark D
Yea, the Situk is pretty much a mob scene. But, you can rent a driftboat and make the 9-mile float from the bridge down and, even though there might be 20 boats on the river, you can get away from people. Plus, there are enough fish for everybody. Still, it’s not going to be an ‘alone in the wilderness” experience!
