Alaska 2019

Last summer, we had a good partial day of fishing on a creek near Juneau. We decided to make a longer trip this year, and so went to a fly-in lodge northwest of Anchorage. The trip was by float plane.

There is no way to get there by road, but you might make it by dogsled in the winter.

The lodge is on Lake Creek, a tributary of the Yentna River. Lake Creek is not fed by glacier melt, and so runs clear.

The lodge building:

Guest cabin:

Rainbows would take sculpins, mice, and several types of streamer.

There were also grayling.

King salmon were present. This one may have had an encounter with a seal before going upstream.

One day, we went up nearby Fish Creek to a lake full of northern pike.

The highlight of that day was getting close to a moose.
