Winding along the water's edge, the Naha River National Recreation Trail provides access to some of the best stream fishing in the Ketchikan area. Dolly Varden and cutthroat trout are present year-round and several species of salmon are in the river from July through September. Spring and fall steelhead provide the fishing for which the Naha is expecially famous.
