If this is the Lake Creek I think it is you will probably want to bring some rods that are appropriately matched for trout fishing. When I was there I thought the best fishing to be had was for the rainbow and grayling. I caught rainbow trout to about 6 lbs, but most were in the 16-20 inch range. A 15 foot double-hander would be massive overkill for this kind of sport. Also, my experience agrees with Nate’s observation, egg-sucking leeches are the ticket on these rivers. Are you staying at the lodge or floating?
