Chase Steelhead in the Wilds of Alaska

Chrome Chasers Lodge provides a once in a lifetime experience to fish the Alaskan frontier for feisty steelhead. You will be sight fishing with nymphs and swinging streamers to large steelhead in pristine Alaskan waters. These steelhead average 8-15 lbs, but get as big as 20 lbs! With access to 13 different streams there is no shortage of great water to fish on this journey. The trip is not for the faint of heart. It is a true Alaskan wilderness adventure!
