RIVER TRIP DESCRIPTION: By floatplane from Lake Hood, you'll be flying westerly through wingspan-wide, jagged and snow covered mountain passes into the Lake Clark Region.  After being enticed to shoot your entire float trips supply of media at hanging glaciers and rugged summits, a pair of sapphire lakes materializes on the horizon.  Framed by the surrounding peaks of Lake Clark National Park and Preserve lies Gem-like Twin Lakes, the put in for your remote Alaska float trip adventure.

The Chilikadrotna River spills swiftly west for 60 miles to its confluence with the Mulchatna River. The Chili's crystal clear water dashes swiftly through the spruce forested hill country where river running skills are prerequisite for negotiating sweepers, strainers, occasional small log jams, boulder gardens, shallows, narrows, and rapids that in addition demand a certain level of alertness at all times. One stretch of the river drops 50 feet in 3/4 of a mile.  Not a difficult whitewater stretch, still very swift.

Historically, Aleuts and Eskimos settled this part of Alaska. When the Russians arrived, Athabaskins moved into the area displacing the Aleuts and Eskimos. The late 1800s brought American surveyors, commercial traders, and gold prospectors. Today, this region has the richness of the remote wilderness.  Prospecting is not a thing of the past in this area and is currently being surveyed.  This wilderness area is more valuable kept wild and should be protected.

The Chilikadrotna River provides spectacular scenery throughout, offers premier angling for several species of fish, thrilling stretches of fun whitewater, excellent camping spots, and super opportunities for viewing wildlife. This river drainage was once home to the one of the largest populations of Barren Ground Caribou in Alaska.  Caribou still roam the riversides, however the herd is broken up into much smaller bands and covers an even more vast amount of territory today.
