Fly Fishing

Eshamy Creek flows into the head of Eshamy Lagoon, which can be reached by a short scenic boat ridPrince William Sound Fly Fishinge or a longer Kayak paddle.  The Creek offers excellent fly fishing for Dolly Varden trout, Sockeye, Pink, and Coho Salmon, from the shore line or walking in the stream using waders.

A short walk up the trail paralleling the stream the Alaska Department of Fishing and Game, each year erect a fish weir to count Sockeye Salmon returning to Eshamy Lake.  Fishing is prohibited within three hundred feet of the weir.  The trail to the lake is improved, about a mile long, and with little gain in elevation through lush vegetation along Eshamy Creek to Eshamy Lake.  Black bears can often be seen along the creek feeding on the returning salmon.  The bears are well fed and have little interest in humans but care should still be taken while traversing the area.

Where the trail meets the head of Eshamy Creek and Eshamy Lake the log jam offers an excellent platform for casting a fly to the nearby trout.  Eshamy Lake is know for having the highest concentration of Cut Throat trout in the State of Alaska!  Novice, or Expert, Fisher-man or Fisher-woman the packing your rod, real, chest waders or float tube will be a rewarded by the breathtaking scenery and the trout rising to your fly.
