OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly The island chain waters of Southeast Alaska are a Mecca for steelhead. During April and May, these prized freshwater game fish quietly slip into select rivers and streams from the misty rainforests of Ketchikan in the south to the wind-and-surf battered beaches of the remote outer coast north to Cape Yakataga. In my opinion, this wild and unblemished geographical locale encompasses some of the best remaining wild steelhead waters in North America.
