Lake Creek is a great river for families and fishermen alike
and perfect for those who want to float a beautiful wild river.
Miles of fun whitewater, Mt. McKinley framed upstream,
excellent fishing and abundant wildlife.
We started floating Lake Creek in 1977 and, for many years, we were the only company to offer Alaska float fishing trips from Chelatna Lake – Lake Creek’s headwaters – all the way to the confluence with the Yentna River where Lake Creek ends. We have floated it in every season at every water level and know it very very well. It remains one of our favorite waters thanks to the great fishing and spectacular scenery.
Much of Lake Creek’s 55 miles length is spiked with fun boulder gardens – class II & III rapids – making the float fun for you and, for the guide, busy. A string of old trappers cabins dots the river’s course, upstream views frequently frame Mt. McKinley & the rest of the Alaska Range and short side hikes lead us to beautiful views.
Lake Creek’s rocky course creates many holes, pockets and drifts and most of the river is ideal for the fly fisherman. The river hosts good Salmon runs – all 5 species of salmon come into Lake Creek and the river hosts some of the largest King and Chum salmon in Alaska. Lake Creek Rainbow Trout are plentiful and large and Grayling fishing can be excellent.
This diversity makes Lake Creek one of the finest float trips in Alaska.
An optional extension will let you spend a few nights in Cooper Landing. Not only is this a great option for the fisherman who wants a few more days of prime fishing, it is a wonderful experience for the whole family.
