    Default Deception Creek

    Should be in the regs. No King fishing though. Nice clear water.

    Willow Creek, check the regs and theres no fish there hardly worth fishing
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Hatcher pass road (Willow fishhook) crosses Deception creek about 2 miles or so up from the Parks highway. Deception runs into Willow creek just below the bridge.

    Willow creek is the one that is just north of Hatcher pass road on the Parks highway. It runs parallel to Hatcher pass rd.

    Not sure which one you are describing.

    Both have great fishing. Deception creek doesn't have any open seasons for salmon, but rainbow and grayling seasons are listed.

    Willow creek is closed to kings above the Parks hwy bridge and is closed to all other salmon above the confluence with Deception creek. Check the regs for the dates though.

    I was up Hatchers way last fall after the flooding. The road was washed out for a stretch past the lodge. Anyone know how it affected the area around Deception Creek or if they fixed the road?
