Lake Creek | Alaska

Lake Creek is a 60 mile long white-water river. Like to see a HD Time Lapse Video done recently by one of our guides, Greg Stafford? Click Here!  Lake Creek begins with a breathtaking 1 hour float plane flight directly toward Mt. McKinley where we land in Chelatna Lake. It's a real eye popper of a flight and a float! Denali as it's know locally, Mt. McKinley, 20,280 ft. and Mt. Foraker, 17,400 are visable during the upper half of the float! It's location is in the Alaska's interior so it's often a warm weather river. Large numbers of Kings (late June - July 13), Silvers and Sockeye (peaking the second week of August) return each year to spawn. This river is unique. It moves through the lateral moraine of Kahiltna Glacier as it flows off Mt. McKinley. Chelatna Lake has a filtering effect on Lake Creek, so it's almost always clear. This makes it excellent for fly fishing and spin fishing. Gravel beds combined with such a constant supply of clear water make it an excellent resource for salmon spawning. The Rainbow Trout fishing is excellent all season long with lots in the 24 inch range. The second half of the river flows swiftly through a gorgeous canyon covered with class II and III rapids. Moose, eagles, grizzly and black bears are commonly seen.
