Our friend, Chris Carlin of Anchorage took a break from building the finest
bamboo rods you will find, to do a little fishing. Okay, "a little fishing" is putting
it mildly. The average Steelhead run on the Situk river in Alaska is around 8,000
fish and males who have made the 22 mile journey up the river multiple times
can reach 40 inches and 25 pounds!
One unique aspect about the Situk is that it is not glacier fed. The clear water
provides optimum conditions for Steelhead reproduction.
