Most fishermen fly into Anchorage the day before they arrive at Lake Creek Anglers. They spend the night in Anchorage and then fly out early the next morning to Bulchitna Lake. The day of arrival at Lake Creek, you will be responsible for arriving at Regal Air which is located on Lake Hood. We will coordinate your departure from Regal Air.
The cost of this ticket is included in our price. Remember that Alaska’s state bird is the mosquito, so dress appropriately for this flight because you may be eaten alive once you arrive at Bulchitna Lake! At this time you are allowed to check two 50 pound bags/coolers on commercial flights. This is what is also allowed at Regal Air. Since you will be responsible for all your meals, we recommend that you bring one bag filled with your gear and one cooler filled with your food. There are times when Regal Air may not be able to fly you in with all your gear. You will be asked to bring only your fishing supplies to tide you over until your supplies arrive later in the day. A carry on would be appropriate for this. You will be staying 3 nights at Lake Creek Angler’s cabins. The nights require a light sleeping bag. Fishing hours on the river are from 6:00 am until 11:00 pm. The basic rule is that if you land and kill a fish, then you are done fishing until the next morning. This ensures that you will not end up poaching a fish in case the next fish dies after hooking it. You can hook and land as many fish as you like, as long as you release the healthy fish. The regulations state that if you take the fish all the way out of the water, then you must kill and keep the fish. Keep this in mind when unhooking and taking pictures. Nets will be provided, however if they are not taken care of, they will be deducted from the cleaning/supply deposit.
