    Default Clear Creek Rainbows & Kings: advice?

    I'm headed up to Clear Creek (Mahay's shuttle) the first week of July. Planning on fishing for Kings and rainbows (and grayling, etc., as the opportunity arises).

    I was wondering if anyone could recommend any fly-patterns for rainbows, and regular lures for Kings, that would be effective on Clear Creek. Also, fly patterns for Kings.

    I'm new to Alaska, so I'm not too knowledgeable on what's gonna work up there. I know a lot of the folks on here are, though, so any help/advice/tips would be greatly appreciated.

    THANKS!

    no rainbows or grayling there you should look elsewhere And they definately wouldn't hit dry flies if they were there, and one absolutely hike upstream because of the bear
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    I'm also heading there July 4th and plan to fish clear creek if possible.

    I was told to the flys to use for rainbows are: Griffiths, caddis's, parachute, and nymphs.

    goooood luck!

    Gotfish? a member on here is also saying that just plane ol' bunny hair is deadly for rainbows. All shades of orange to off white.

    How much is the round trip shuttle from Mahays?
