Pursuing Chrome in Southeast Alaska
paper texture
Based out of Wrangell, Alaska, Chrome Chasers offers guests a unique opportunity culminating from over a decade of exploring the various rivers and streams in the region of Southeast Alaska. The sole purpose of that exploration being to target wild steelhead, saltwater species, and to show guests all that Southeast Alaska has to offer. Utilizing a 37-foot boat called Chromagnum, anglers will visit multiple rivers throughout the week in areas only accessible by boat or aircraft. This provides anglers access to virtually untouched fisheries vacant of any crowds and home to large, healthy, and very wild steelhead. Chrome Chasers is virtually the ultimate Southeast, Alaska experience. During fishing days, anglers will hike through the famous Tongass National Forest on their way back to Wrangell and have the opportunity to pull and throw their own shrimp and crab pot.

Lodging Details
With a spectacular view of the town and harbor below and just a short drive from the boat harbor, Chrome Chasers’ lodge has every amenity needed to stay comfortable, relaxed, and well-rested. It’s home away from home and there’s nothing better than being able to sit on a sofa after a long day of hiking and catching wild steelhead. Each room is equipped with a very comfortable queen-sized bed. The four guests share 2 1/2 bathrooms. With a maximum capacity of only four anglers per week, Chrome Chasers can accommodate almost any angler and offer a truly unique and intimate experience.

Food and Beverages
The dining experience at Chrome Chasers is similar to that of a 5-star restaurant. Fresh seafood including crab, shrimp, clams, halibut, and sushi are all regularly featured on the lodge menu. What really makes their meals so unique is that anglers will have the opportunity to eat what they catch, meaning they can pull their own crab and shrimp pots, troll for kings, and become an integral part of what’s on the plate come dinner time. The kitchen duties are shared among the staff including the guides. Capt. Rick Matney claims the title of head guide and chef and rightfully so. One thing is for certain, anglers will not go hungry and will be well fueled for long days of hiking and reeling in fresh steelhead. Beverages are included in the trip package excluding any beer or liquor, which can be purchased in the town of Wrangell upon arrival.

Typical Length of Stay
Standard trips start on Sunday and end the following Saturday. Trips include six (6) nights at the Chrome Chasers Lodge in Wrangell, Alaska.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
While Chrome Chasers’ primary focus is catching wild steelhead, there are opportunities to sightsee and enjoy the beautiful Tongass National Forest. Nature and wildlife abound in this pristine paradise. From orca whales to Alaska brown bears, there are few places on earth that have the abundance of wildlife found in the Southeastern Alaska wilderness.

Internet / Communications
Chrome Chasers does have Wi-Fi available while at the lodge. Cell phones will work in Wrangell depending on the service provider.
