PETERS CREEK OUTPOST CAMP
PREMIER ALASKA KING AND SILVER SALMON FISHERY
If you like seclusion and fabulous salmon fishing this is the trip for you. After arriving in Anchorage, you’ll be greeted and driven straight to Willow Air Service (75 miles). After baggage and gear is stowed tight, the Beaver takes off for a stunning 35 minute flight to the lake. Mt McKinley, just north in Denali National Park, will reveal itself shortly after takeoff, looming some 20,000 vertical feet above! Once at the lake, a beautiful two story cabin sits just off the private dock. Full time electricity, running hot and cold water, showers and fully stocked kitchen await you. The cabin has TV, VCR, and phone. Enjoy the sunset after a day of fishing on a gorgeous porch and covered deck overlooking the lake. Miles of groomed trail await the after dinner walker or even the avid hiker. Fishing is definitely possible the first day based on early arrivals, before 11 a.m.
The fishing is a three mile ride through pristine woods to the confluence of a clear running creek and the glacial river, Kahiltna. A custom ATV wagon gets you there comfortably with all your gear in ten minutes. Fish the day away at the rivers edge in excellent wading waters or cast right from shore if the 39 degree Alaskan water gets too cold for the toes! Warm up, snacks, and even cots for a quick nap are at the creeks edge in a traditional Alaskan, wood floored guide tent/cabin.
The salmon fishing is incredible here! Kings range from 18 to 60 lbs!!!!! It is not uncommon to tire out way before the fishing does! If Kings are the anglers goal, plan to fish between June 10th -July 13th. If Silver Salmon are the goal then July 25th- August 20th are most prime. Please note the Rainbow fishing is excellent just a short hike upstream, full of pockets, riffles and huge old glacial boulders. Daily flyout options are limitless, getting the angler to all species of fish desired. Day trips begin at $340.00 per person based on 2 people.
Fly fisherman and spin fishermen will both do very well at these spots.
The trip is $3995 and includes:
Transportation from Anchorage to cabin (van shuttle/floatplane).
5 days fully guided fishing (tackle included)
