  • Hey, my pilot friend and I are planning a trip to Moraine Creek in August to fish some trophy rainbows. We plan to land on Crosswinds lake and camp on the creek for a few days. Is there anything you can tell us to help us plan for this trip?

  • Hey Jeffery.

    Moraine is a awesome river! It is a very busy river, with rafters and lodges flying in for day floats. Crosswind, is used quite frequently for all the lodges. You will be right at the mouth of Funnel creek, which is another awesome fishery.

    Moraine will be VERY heavy with bears. Highly recommend having a way to protect the plane while it’s parked and a bear fence for camping. Bears will be all around you.

    6mm and 8mm beads will be your best bet, but I would have some flesh flies and streamers just in case. Sockeye’s will be thick, so streamers can be tough to get through them all.

    Any thing else I can answer or help with, please let me know.

    Thanks - Mike
