Situk River Steelhead

….from the Alaska Dispatch…..

A quarter mile from the Alaska Airlines terminal at the Yakutat Airport there’s a World War II-era hangar. Inside of that 40,000-square-foot hangar is the home of the Alaska Warbird Museum, the Situk Fly Shop, and Bob Miller.

Miller, the founder of the non-profit museum and owner of the shop, sells gear and provides fishing reports for thousands of anglers who visit — or wish they could visit — the Situk River, a 16-mile river famous for its massive production of steelhead trout and salmon. Miller has big dreams of some day tapping into that traffic and taking people on glacier tours in his authentic WWII aircraft parked inside the hangar. But that’s another story.
