Your host at Wilderness Place Lodge: Jason Rockvam and Cory Wendt, Owners. Alaska Fishing on a remote, scenic freestone Alaska river system does not get any better!

Fly-fishing experience at Wilderness Place Lodge: Alaska salmon fishing and trout fishing is excellent and our picturesque clear water river is like none other. We also have good fishing opportunities for Arctic Grayling and Northern Pike. King Salmon are the first species to enter our river in early June. King salmon range from 20 - 50 pounds in Lake Creek with some exceeding 60lbs. King salmon fishing is by both spin and fly fishing techniques. King fishing remains good through July 10. By mid-July, large number of sockeye salmon arrive. Sockeye average 4 - 8 pounds in Lake Creek and are renowned for their quantity and fighting ability. Within a few days of the arrival of sockeye salmon, pink salmon (2 - 5 lbs), silver salmon (8 - 14 lbs) and chum salmon (8 - 16 lbs) arrive. Pink, Silver and Chum fishing peaks from mid-July through August 25. Rainbow trout fishing is excellent throughout the season at Lake Creek and provides a consistent alternative to salmon fishing during your trip. Many large native rainbows roam Lake Creek and are an awesome thrill for fly fishing and spin fishing enthusiasts alike. Click here for quick link country guide.

A typical fly-fishing day at Wilderness Place Lodge: We assign one guide per 2-3 guests. This allows for your group(s) to plan the day's fishing as you please. We do our very best to accommodate the preferred itinerary of all of our visitors. We offer a very liberal daily fishing schedule, but do request that every group take a break either in the afternoon or evening to allow your guide(s) to rest and take care of their other personal chores such as fish filleting, boat cleaning and gear maintenance. Please contact the host for more information.
