Local Alaska Fishing Report for Lake Creek and the Yentna River
July 3, 2013 -- Finally, some cooler temps and rain here in Alaska. More good numbers of king salmon pushing into Lake Creek including some of the big male 'bucks' we typically see by late-June. Trout fishing remains consistent and a good supplement to king salmon fishing. Many guests have also been enjoying side trips for northern pike in a nearby lake system with great action on top-water flies. Life is good on the creek and water conditions are ideal. Good fishing!
June 20, 2013 -- This week's fishing report from Lake Creek! From this Monday through last night has been a little slow with record high temps and sunny blue skies although the bite has been pretty good in early morning and late evening. Trout fishing is getting better and better by the day and we've landed some beauties! We had a good preliminary run of king salmon last weekend that pushed through lower Lake Creek pretty fast. Fishing was good for about 48 hours and then tapered off to fair fishing by the start of the week. Monday through Wednesday I would report fishing to be fair and mostly sporadic with best fishing early morning. Yesterday evening was a different story. We had a much bigger push of fish yesterday evening with excellent fishing for all of our guests. We had 20 hookups just yesterday evening in a matter of 2 hours by 8 fishermen upstream Lake Creek. We landed half a dozen larger fish that what was caught last week, all of them released of course. This morning was even better. 14 out of 16 guests in camp hooked up and landed/released a king with many more hookups. Fishing I would say was very good to excellent from 6pm yesterday through 2 pm today. We had much success both at the mouth of Lake Creek and throughout the lower 4 miles of Lake Creek proper swinging flies and drifting corkies from the bank. The guides we have upstream reported a significant amount of fish starting to hold up in the larger holes mid-river.
June 21, 2013 -- A bunch of king salmon caught today including a 45 pounder! Great water conditions and comfortable weather with partly cloudy skies, temps near 70.
Our Alaskan fishing lodge welcomes those seeking the very best fishing and personal service. We are blessed with a great family of long-term guests! Make fishing trip reservations early for peak dates!
