© Deep Creek Fishing Club
Deep Creek is known for their fully guided, intensive variety of fishing expeditions that leave from the Fishing Club. Both saltwater and freshwater fishing is available, and the options change daily to cater to what is in season and what hotel guests are looking for.
Saltwater fishing is perhaps most popular, due to the area being known as one of the top spots for halibut fishing in the world. In fact, halibut of more than 300 pounds are caught at the Cook Inlet on a regular basis. Salmon are also prevalent, as well as rockfish and giant lingcod. Guests will be taken out in one of the club’s 28 feet cabin boats (which can hold up to four people) and are fitted with top notch terminal tackle and Accurate Reels.
For freshwater fishing, the club takes guests to 40 of the 300 available freshwater streams in the local area. The creeks are often clear and hotel guests can fish 12 different fish species, including five unique species of salmon, rainbow trout, and northern pike. Fisherman can do either fly or spinner fishing or use one of the available river sleds to troll, drift, or wade. Fishing guides are also available to help.
A valid fishing license is required, which can be purchased online in advance. Additionally, king salmon require an additional stamp which must be purchased in person at a local grocery store.
Fish can be stored overnight for a small fee and can be shipped at an additional cost. Processing is also available on-site.
Bag limits are strictly enforced. Check the website for more specific details.
Another opportunity offered at Deep Creek is bear viewing and photography. Hotel guests can purchase an optional adventure package, which includes one day of other saltwater or freshwater fishing, ocean kayaking (in Kachemak Bay), nature hikes, boat trips to Halibut Cove, Gull Island, and Seldovia, dog sledding, gold panning, horseback riding, a spa day, and a visit to a local oyster farm.
Hotel guests will then be given the opportunity to view and photograph brown bears. Tour guides will lead them to safe places to take photos without being in danger.
