I made my third trip to Crystal Creek this summer and have plans to return next year, if they’ll have me. The accommodations and chef prepared meals are all excellent, the bar is lively and entertaining, the staff is friendly knowledgeable and eager to help, and the fishing beyond outstanding! The flights to the remote fishing locations in the de Haviland Beaver aircraft are great ways to see the spectacular scenery and plentiful wildlife. Dan, Lynette, Alex and Heather leave no stones unturned to make your trip an adventure of a lifetime. A Crystal Creek adventure is a bucket list must for those who love to fish and is likely to make you start planning your next trip there as soon as you fly out.
This was my 9th trip to Alaska and my 6th trip to CCL. Looking forward to the 7th. These folks have everything figured out! If you like to catch huge rainbows, chase salmon, hike in amazing landscapes devoid of humans, this is the place to go. Every day you can fly to a different location and experience all that anyone could dream about for a fishing vacation in Alaska. Make sure you follow the packing list closely and you will be prepared. Even if you forget something, they seem to be ready for anything.
First time at Crystal Creek Lodge. It was amazing. From the greeting at the airport, the rooms, food, guides, fishing, airplanes, rivers, wines, guides and staff. They have an eye for details! It’s great for experienced fly fisherman or not, like me. The guides have a lot of patience in helping you and always with a smile. Will definitely want to come back and bring the rest of my family.
Our company has been taking Alaskan fishing adventures for a few decades. We use this experience as a teambuilding trip for those executives who achieved their annual business plans. Participating in this trip so cherished by our leaders…they use it as motivation to achieve new heights. How is it, that a fishing lodge can mean so much...it starts with incredible and talented people who have a passion to serve their guests and a location and facilities second to none. From our hosts (Dan, Alex and Heather) to the creations of Chef Ben & the service team surpassed only by an incredibly fishy guide staff...they are all amazing people who love their craft and it shows. You will not find a better fishing experience, better facilities or better people anywhere. Crystal Creek defines 5-star!…
An outstanding experience. The owner and staff are extremely competent, friendly and helpful. You cannot beat the accommodations and experience. Orvis endorsed lodge and equipment . The food is first class and well presented.
