Planning your Alaska fly fishing trip, or fly fishing lodge adventure!

The fly fishing experience at our lodge is quite diverse and varies widely depending on the time of summer you visit and the species of fish you intend to pursue on Lake Creek. Early June grayling and trout provide exciting quarry on dry flies and smolt pattern streamers. By mid-June water levels and clarity is ideal for king salmon fly fishing. We swing large streamers for kings up to 60lbs! Spey fishing is our primary focus when targeting kings on the fly mid-June through July 10. By mid-July large numbers of sockeye, pink, silver and chum salmon enter our river system. Silver, Pink and Chum salmon continues to peak through approximately August 25. Fly fishing for rainbow trout peaks in early to mid June and again from late July through September. Fly tiers, visit our Alaska signature fly patterns page to stock your fly box!

Fly fishing Alaska salmon information and guides.

Fly fishing Alaska salmon

Our lodge offers a wide variety of salmon fly fishing opportunities. King Salmon in June and July are very popular with world-traveling sportsmen of intermediate to advanced abilities. Kings are large, strong and very well could be the elite freshwater fly fishing venue. Sockeye, Pink, Silver and Chum salmon provide non-stop action for anglers of all abilities; novice to advanced. Spot casting to large schools of these salmon species is something you must experience!

Planning your Alaska trout fly fishing trip.

Trout Fly Fishing

Lake Creek offers unlimited trout fly fishing opportunities. Our river is a perfect freestone wade fishing stream with much topography, gravel bars, channel breaks, islands, eddies, riffles and all the terms synonymous with blue-ribbon fly fishing. Trout fishing is very good summer-long, but the high points of the season are early to late June, late July, August and September. Please visit our Trout Fly Fishing Page for additional resources and trip information.

More Fish that I Could Imagine

Five star rating. August 1, 2012
5/5 stars
This lodge is fairly accessible for Alaska. It is about a 45 minute flight on a float plane from Anchorage. The fishing is really hard to believe. At times I caught a fish on every cast for more than 10 casts in a row. The cabins are quite nice and the staff is friendly. The guides are absolutely the best! This is a wilderness experience, but they still have nice food. I think people visit for the fishing and it really is second to none. Guest review from Tripadvisor
