Huge ‘bows at the Rock. Lower Talarik Creek is Alaska’s premier fishery for rainbows measured in pounds and not inches. It’s also one of Alaska’s shortest fisheries. A channel of maybe three quarters of a mile divides a pair of lagoons. In this channel, which looks like it might have been cut by the Corps of Engineers, anglers from a dozen or more lodges in the Iliamna region vie for spots to cast to rainbows. The channel is a feed trough and these rainbows are hogs. They gorge on sockeye salmon flesh and eggs and almost anything else you care to throw at them. They’re big, passive fish used to having the current bring them dinner. Get there at the right time on virtually any day from mid-August into September, and you’ll catch so many 5- to 9-pound ‘bows that you’ll wonder whether you’ll ever be happy again on your home stream with its stock of 9-inchers. Don’t worry. Winter will intervene with its snow and sleet and endless doldrums, and by April you’ll be more than ready to pick up a willowy rod and toss #16 Hendricksons or 1/32 ounce Roostertails to your local trout. But in your mind will be that one that broke you off in the Talarik. That’s the one you’ll remember. Species: Rainbow, some sockeye. Angling methods: fly-fishing only.
