    When you plan your stay at our lodge will determine which species of salmon are running in 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 king salmon 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 approx. August 25. Trout peak 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 gear

    Recommended Fly Gear

    When fly fishing Alaska, it is important to have the correct combination of rods, reels and lines that will guarantee a successful trip. We enjoy the opportunity to fish a wide variety of salmon species and rainbow trout under a variety of water conditions throughout our river. We fish subsurface streamers and nymphs, dry flies, sculpins, etc. from shallow riffles to deep water runs. It is essential to match the set up to the conditions as presentation is essential to productive fly fishing on Lake Creek. Below we give some suggestions of set-ups that consistently work well for us at Wilderness Place Lodge.

    Fly Rods: We use 14' 10 wt double-handed spey rods for kings. Other salmon species, 7 - 8 wt medium action rods suffice. Trout/Grayling: 6 wt, med. action rods.
    Fly Reels: For king salmon: a large-arbor reel with a strong drag system is crucial. For all other salmon, a 7-8 wt. compatible reel with a good drag system and sufficient line capacity for 100yds backing plus fly line. Likewise for trout, a good drag system in a 6wt compatible model. Ross, TFO and Lamson make great intermediate cost fly reels.
    Fly Lines: King Salmon: a straight running line with a variety of interchangeable sink tips are suggested. Rio T-14 can be bought in bulk and cut to length to fine-tune your ideal drift. Skagit systems are popular too as well as full sink tip lines such as a SA Bluewater Express. Other salmon, we us WF8 floating line; and sometimes an intermediate sinking line. Trout: pack a WF floater, a DT floater for dries and an intermediate line.

    Tying Flies for your Alaska fishing trip

    Fly patterns for Alaska salmon and trout can vary widely. You can experiment with many varieties of flies and be very successful. We have assembled a condensed list of our standby fly patterns for each species which you can view via the above pdf links. Also, check out our lodge's Signature Alaska fly patterns page. In general, if you are tying your own flies for your Alaska trip, be sure to invest in good strong hooks for all patterns. This will greatly increase your hook and landing rate. Also be sure to tie a good variety of colors and sizes. As with all rivers, conditions can change regularly and certain flies no doubt work more successfully in some conditions versus others. Versatility is a key aspect of successful Alaska fly fishing.
