McDougall Fishing


The mouth of Lake Creek is considered one of the top salmon fishing bites in Alaska, and McDougall Lodge sits approximately 1.5 miles from the mouth of Lake Creek. But we don’t stop fishing there. Jet sleds allow us to fish the lower eight miles of Lake Creek, as well as various other clear-water tributaries of the Yentna River.

You won’t be disappointed!


All five species of Pacific salmon run Lake Creek at different times of the year (see chart below) so you can book your trip around the fish you’re ready to land.

Though salmon are plentiful only during the spawn, Rainbow Trout, Grayling and Northern Pike can be caught year round. You can choose to fly fish, to spin or bait cast depending on the time of year and proven methods, and our guides will help you along the way.

So, book now for a fishing trip you’ll never forget. Our guides are some of the best fishermen in Alaska and our Lodge Manager is locally known as the best fisherman on the Yentna. We promise to do everything we can to make your experience memorable. We hope to see you soon!
