    Default deadman lake and big lake

    Has anyone made the trip down to these lakes off of the Denali Highway? I have fished many lakes on the highway with great success. However, you know what they say, " the grass is always greener on the other side" or in my case "the fishing is always better the further you are from people". Im mostly worried about the terrain and if ite feasible to get back there? It looks decent on google maps. Thanks, Eric

    You can get back there fairly easily. Take the route from Butte Lake or even Seattle Creek. A few guys get out there fishing Big Lake every winter. Mostly Big Lake, with only rarely do I see anyone on Deadman. I guess I'm assuming your talking about snow machine riding out there to ice fish. ATV's is quite a challenge at times.

    That's a daunting trip, and yep, you'll get some winch time! I found the best thing to anchor to is a longline anchor, but I'm not sure where you get those in Fairbanks! lol. Maybe someplace in Anchorage or the Kenai area would have them. Good luck!! Claude
