Fly Fishing – Lake Creek,

Lake Creek, its tributaries and the dozen or so surrounding streams offer unlimited fly-fishing opportunities. With king salmon in June and early July and chum salmon, pink salmon and silver salmon in late July and August, anglers will find plenty of fly rod action in the area. Our best rainbow trout fishing begins in early August when several species of salmon are spawning in Lake Creek. We fish for rainbows into late September until freezing weather in the headwaters lowers our river temperature into the thirties.

MEALS Wilderness Place Lodge features excellent hearty meals to compliment your Alaska fishing lodge experience. We strive to serve the best selection of Alaskan and Pacific Coast entrees. Our professional chef features dishes of fresh-caught Lake Creek salmon, Alaskan Halibut, Prime Rib, and hearty extras necessary to accompany hungry fishermen. Enjoy a glass of fine wine prior to dinner, and a fresh cup of our own lodge-roasted coffee to balance out a hearty dinner. Optional in-camp breakfast is served at 8 a.m. every morning for those not on the water fishing. For early risers, a hot breakfast is delivered to you streamside while you fish. On-water breakfasts usually consist of hot egg, sausage croissants or sandwiches, fresh fruit, hot coffee and juice. We also will deliver sub-sandwiches, chips, soda, snacks, vegetables, water, fruit juices, etc. to cover lunch on the water.
We give every fisherman the option to maximize their time on the river. Also, fireside shore lunches cooked by your guide may be arranged if desired. We typically grill fresh-caught Lake Creek salmon, vegetables and baked potato plus a glass of wine and prepared dessert right from the kitchen. It’s your trip; let us know what best suits your tastes! A four-course, gourmet dinner is served at the lodge every evening at 6:00 pm to allow for evening fishing afterwards.

Arrival and Departure Guests leave for the lodge from Anchorage’s Lake Hood (adjacent to Anchorage International Airport) at 11:00 AM from Rust’s Flying Service unless arranged otherwise. It is recommended for the fishermen to arrive in Anchorage on the day before their trip to the lodge. Upon your arrival to Anchorage or your flight to the lodge, call Rust’s Flying Service at 1-800-544-2299 for a free complementary shuttle. On the last day of your trip, you will depart the lodge at 11:45 AM, arriving back in Anchorage by 12:30 PM. It is best to allow several additional hours in Anchorage before flying home from the Anchorage Int’l Airport.

Flying Services Guests are flown to and from the lodge in floatplanes (Cessna 206, DeHavilland Beaver, DeHavilland Otter) operated by Rust’s Flying Service based out of Lake Hood Seaplane Base adjacent to Anchorage International airport. The flying service is fully insured and has an excellent safety record. Most of the airport hotels will provide shuttle service to the flying service dock. However, if transportation is needed, it should be arranged through the flying service at least 24 hours in advance.

Equipment – Rentals For nominal cost, we can provide you with hip boots, spinning rods and fly rods. All of these pieces of equipment must be reserved in advance.

Tackle a complete packing list of fishing tackle items is provided in advance to each guest. Some guests prefer to outfit themselves with all necessary fly-fishing or spin fishing gear prior to their visit with us. Many guests however choose to purchase their needed tackle from the fully equipped lodge tackle shop to prevent purchase of unneeded tackle. Either way, we will be sure to update you on popular lures, tackle, equipment and fly patterns for each Alaska salmon species, and rainbow trout.

Licenses Fishing licenses can be purchased at the lodge if the client has not done so in Anchorage. Cash, traveller’s checks, personal check or credit card may pay for items purchased at the lodge.
