Q: Where are you located?
A: We are 75 miles NW of Anchorage, right on the edge of Denali National Park. It’s about a 35 minute floatplane flight out of Anchorage. There isn’t a road for 65 miles. Helps cutback on the crowds you experience down south!
Q: What do your packages include?
A: Our all inclusive packages include fully guided fishing, rods, reels and tackle, lodging, meals and we’ll also fillet, freeze and vacuum pack your catch.
Q: What is not included in your packages?
A:The only thing not included in our packages is the floatplane flight, fishing license and gratuities.
Q: How many fish can we harvest on Lake Creek?
A: During King season you are allowed to keep 1 a day, for a total of 5 a year. Once you harvest a King Salmon you are not allowed to fish for Kings any longer that day. You would then target Rainbows or Pike if you choose to continue fishing. During Sockeye, Silver, Chums & Pink season you are allowed to be in possession of 3 fish a day. Sometimes you are only allowed 2 Silvers and 1 other species per day.
Q: How much fish can I take home with me?
A: Most of our clients will take home 50+lbs. of fish. The airlines allow two 50lb pieces of luggage. We recommend you bring one 50lb bag full of clothing etc. Then you purchase a “airline approved fish box” and fill that with 50lb of fish. This becomes your 2nd piece of luggage. This way you don’t have to pay anything additional to bring your fish back with you.
Q: How much does the floatplane cost?
A: Approximately $225 roundtrip per person, and we will schedule this flight for you!!!!
Q: How much is a fishing license?
A: Approx $30.00
Q: What kind of fish do you get?
A: We get all 5 species of Pacific Salmon (Kings, Sockeye, Silver, Chum, Pinks), and Rainbow Trout. We also have a series of 7 lakes that are within 1 mile of the lodge that are full of Pike.
Q: Do you get Steelhead?
A: No, not in our area
Q: When is the best time to go to Lake Creek?
A: Well, it depends on what you want to fish for. We start booking for Kings at the end of May up til the first week of July. Then about July 20th, we start booking for Sockeye, Silvers, Chums, and Pinks. We get Rainbow Trout all summer long, but Sept is the prime time for large Rainbows.
Q: Do you have a problem with the bears?
A: Not usually. We do have bears in our area, but it’s nothing like fishing on the Russian or Kenai. Usually if you see a bear, it’s going to be running from you. All of our guides carry firearms, so bear spray isn’t necessary to bring.
Q: What about hunting?
A: We have great duck hunting after Sept. 1st. We are not offering any other form of hunting.
