Willow Creek is an awesome trout and salmon river that intersects the Parks highway about 70 miles north of Anchorage Alaska. This is our home water and the primary focus of our guiding business. This clear creek is home to some of Alaska’s most beautiful fish, Rainbow Trout. Willow Creek also receives healthy runs of King, Silver, Chum, and Pink salmon. On our adventures on this river you will find that Alaska truly is a fly fisherman’s paradise. In the spring trout are waking up from a long winter and ready to eat! As the salmon arrive their appetite grows until in the late summer months trout gorge themselves on the bounty that salmon provide. Opportunities to spot fish in the clear waters of Willow Creek abound. When the Salmon pile into the river it is truly an amazing sight.
Salmon make their way up the river in late May and take their time allowing plenty of time for an angler to intercept their migration. Some very large King salmon have been caught in Willow Creek. Though in recent years their numbers have dwindled to the point of a no-keep fishery, Kings make for an extremely memorable catch-and-release experience. Silver Salmon are great table fare and come later in the summer. They are among the best fighters and are very willing to chase a fly. The abundance of life in Willow Creek truly sets it apart from many other streams. That is why we live and work in Willow, Alaska.
