Waters We Fish
Our home water creek (“Outpost creek”) is a rare gem by Alaska fishing standards – quaint, remote and a real fish factory for its size. Even anglers who’ve fished all across the giant state of Alaska often comment,
“It’s really hard to find solitude in Alaska with a fishery like this anymore!”
Our week-long guided fishing trip puts you fishing “Outpost creek” on foot most of the week. Expect exceptional small stream fishing with true solitude. We rarely see other fishermen during the trip. Excellent mouse, streamer and dry fly fishing for rainbow trout. Dry fly fishing for arctic grayling all day long. Excellent dolly varden fishing with occasional pink salmon. Grueling battles with king and chum salmon. We recommend a 7 wt fly rod to throw mice patterns and catch everything except the larger king salmon. A stiff 9 wt is minimum for Alaska king salmon fly fishing. A 5 wt is perfect for throwing dry flies all day! And ultra-light spinning gear is also an absolute blast! Make sure to bring quality gear on this trip, big King Salmon will destroy low end rods and reels.

“Outpost creek” is fairly wadeable along its entire length, minus the deep runs and pools. ( A wading staff is helpful for some fishermen.) And we access different sections of this incredible stream with hikes across an open tundra plateau, taking a new trajectory each day from our basecamp.
The shortest walk across the tundra to the creek is 10 to 15 minutes. There is also 30 minute, 45 minute and hour+ trajectories to the water. Those willing to take even longer hikes (100+ mins.) will definitely be rewarded – there is some spectacular and untouched water that few people will ever see.
As a moderately strenuous fly fishing adventure, guests should be in excellent physical shape to fully enjoy the week.
For the 2020 season, the jet boat portion of our program is suspended.
