Thread: Lake Creek/Yetna ?

  1. #1

    Default Lake Creek/Yetna ?

    Client of mine said you can put in at Deshka Landing and head down Su to Yetna, then up for some good trout fishing. I've got to figure out how many river miles it is so we know how much fuel to bring, but it seems manageable for us.

    However, we won't be going for another two weeks. Never fished out that way before, will early October be too late to get into good fish?
    Thank God for people who don't fish!! Not much would get done without them =)

    Would be sorta late for up there. But its like 40ish boat miles? Never boated up there before but i heard 2 tanks of gas for round trip. Some beautiful bows up there.

    The Talachulitna (off the Yentna) is world class 'bow fishing but it is quite a run. I've been thinking about it myself, but have yet to give it a try.

    70 miles round trip during the summer.....late in the year could run a few miles more. Water levels can get also pretty tricky if you have never made the run this time of year.

    Actualy, the tal is off the skewetna, and the skwetna in that part is kinda hard to do. But you can make it ill assure you. Im 14 and i ride a 14' skiff solo while everyone else rides in the 24'. Just hug the banks and stay on the main channel. Avoid near the sand bars at all costs, experince is a big talk.

    We hit a sandbar with the 24' and man it was hell. Imagine deep azz quicksand that you your boat is stuck in. Took 8 hours to get unstuck, yep not fun. And for the tal. Bring a gun there are a ton of bears around that river! have fun should be a epic trip.
