    Default Clear creek trip

    Hi guys not long now until our next AK adventure . We are ariving in anchorage on the 19 th of July from Scotland then we have to be back in anchorage for the 22nd or 23 rd to pick up the rest of our group from Denmark .
    We are thinking of making a short trip north to talkeetna and Taking a boat trip up to clear creek for a couple of days before we pick the Danes up and hit the south side of anchorage .
    Just wondering what you guys in the know think of that plan for that dates and wondering about what tactics and what and species we might find up there .
    Cheers graham.

    King fishing ends on the 13th of July,(If not sooner by the way things are going this year). Silvers wont be in yet, pinks and chums should be good. Might find a Red or two. Make sure to read the regulations and be sure of where you are fishing. Fish Creek has different rules.

    Thanks for the info bigfatskinny. Pinks and chums sound fine I caught a chrome chum at bird creek 3 years ago and it took off like **** off a shovel ,a few of those would be nice .is flyfishing ok up there or do you need to use the baitcasting gear .
    Is it a combat zone or can you play your fish on lighter tackle .
    Cheers graham.

    If you read what the op posted you would see that he is getting to akk the 19th of july and hes looking to catch pinks and chums.
    King fishing closes down until the 14th of july then its fair game to target whatever fish are there except for the remaining kings.

    Fearnot- Have some fun on your fly rods, hike around and slay some fish! There should be a decent number of fish (pinks, chums, trout, maybe even some reds) so if you feel like its smart to pack right for the trip bring a couple different wt fly rods and a medium action spinning setup.
