Lake Creek Alaska - Remote Wilderness River Fishing

We advise to all floaters that this is a remote river with portions of class 3 rapids in the middle section of the 60 mile river. This is a raft trip, along with camping and fishing. We advise those planning their trip to assess their physical capabilities prior to booking. The great diversity of Lake Creek prevents safe passage by jet boat past the 5-mile mark upstream from the mouth. Seeing as the primary access to the river is by this means, a much larger world opens to existence for the more adventuresome individual. Upper Lake Creek is accessible by raft only and features scenic wadeable gravel bars, islands, echo-canyons, and pristine tributaries.The top 20 miles of the creek is typically the most productive habitat for Arctic Grayling and Rainbow Trout all summer long! It is not uncommon for the average fisherman to hook into numerous fish daily. Tributary confluences with Lake Creek, including Sunflower Creek, Camp Creek, Home Creek, and Yenlo Creek, create a Mecca for all salmon species as they congregate prior to marching up the smaller creeks to spawn during August. The very best late season King action is found here when the lower five miles have been nearly vacated by the majority of the June run. Nearly 100% of all Sockeye and Silver Salmon swim the distance and spawn up the smallest of tributaries as well as the shallow flats of Chelatna Lagoon on the south end of the lake. Combining high fish congregation with less angler competition, backed by a landscape second to none creates an Alaskan experience at the highest of calibers. Lake Creek float trips run the length of the river, 60 miles, from the source at Chelatna Lake to the terminus at Wilderness Place Lodge near the confluence with the Yentna River.
