Thread: Lake Creek

  1. #1

    Default Lake Creek

    I was up there late last September and this mid June. Little Lake Creek was the the only water comming down. The channel had changed. Getting a boat up there last september was near impossible and it was not much better a couple of weeks ago. Some work had been done with chain saws but I felt a couple of spots were still risky. Is it any better now??

    I'm also looking for current info on Lake creek, we're planning to float from Chelatna lake in a week. Any comments on river conditions and how the fishing has been? Thanks!

    It's fine up there. Took a chainsaw to the log jam and it's out. Lil lake creek is running normal and so is lake creek. This years channels have been kinda screwed up frOm the jam but nothing to bad. Not worth fishing kings right now tho, bows and grays is a blast about now..

    Just floated all of Lake Creek from July 1-4. Great condition, no log jams anywhere on the river. The water seemed pretty low (though we had never been there previously). Excellent rainbow/grayling fishing for the first 2/3 of the trip, a little slower down low. Purple egg-sucking leaches were the best producers, with dolly llamas and flesh flies also doing well. Actually, I think just about anything will work in there, and I was even fishing with straight 20lb leader b/c I was getting snagged on rocks too much and losing a lot of flies. Bring some dry flies, there were consistent hatches coming off and we caught some bows on dries on the few calm stretches of river. You will have a blast, it was a great trip.

    Are you guys talking about Lake Creek near Nancy Lake? I just got a canoe and am looking for places to take it. Is that a canoe worthy stream?

    Not really, the area is Skwentna and Lake Creek flows into the Yentna. Seems like you should know that.

    It was flowing alot more down the main channel and not as much down little lake creek. Some of these floods the last few years have been screwing with Lake creek and the whole yetna/skwetna river channels.

    I have a cabin up fish lakes creek and was up fishing lake creek for a couple weeks in June and noticed there wasn't hardly any flow coming down lake creek. Do you think you could get a boat up lake creek now?

    We have a cabin at the mouth of the skwetna so we fly up normally. You cant get all the way up lake creek but it should be doable with this rain if it raises the water level. LOW water this past week hope the water comes up.
