McDougall Lodge’s fishing guests receive the personal attention they deserve. Your private Alaskan fishing guide customizes your trip to suit your individual style, taking small groups of just three or four clients, so he can do everything in his power to help you get the catch of a lifetime. The location of McDougall Lodge does the rest. Guests that fish with our lodge have a unique opportunity to fight several wild Alaskan fish species. Lake Creek gets incredible runs of all five Pacific Salmon including King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Coho Salmon, Chum, and Pinks. Each species of salmon run at different times of the year. We also have an abundant stock of wild Rainbow Trout, Grayling, and Northern Pike. You can choose to fly fish at our Alaska Lodge, spin or bait cast depending on the target species and time of year.
Lake Creek flows 65 miles from the base of the towering Mt. McKinley to the Yentna River. It’s a clear, gravel-bottom river where all species of Pacific salmon flock to spawn each year. Located approximately 1.5 miles from the mouth of Lake Creek, McDougall Lodge is the ideal location to access the salmon spawns.
Your private Alaskan fishing guide will customize your trip to suit your individual style. Jet sleds allow fishing the lower eight miles of Lake Creek, as well as various other clear-water tributaries of the Yentna River, so you won’t miss any opportunities.
