RIVER FLOAT TRIP DESCRIPTION: Interior Alaska's Gulkana River is Federally protected and a Designated National, Wild and Scenic Waterway offering a variety of not too demanding whitewater, easily viewable wildlife and excellent sport fishing opportunities. This small, alluring clear water river begins in the plateau region of the Alaska Range near the scenic Denali Highway and flows southward through mixed tundra and forest; finally dumping into the great Copper river. The high plateau is worthy of note due to the fact that three major Alaska river origins are within very close proximity to one another, yet drain into far different end-points including Prince William Sound, Cook Inlet, and the Bering Sea. It is also the foraging grounds of the Nelchina Caribou heard summering in Alaska, then wintering following migration routes into Canada.

On the upper stretches of the Gulkana River (meaning the crooked river in native Ahtna), the Arctic Grayling fishing is phenomenal. Hook-up ratios for even the beginning angler are superb. Intermediate and advanced fly fishers get strikes on perchance 85% of casts. Mid river has a fun section of canyon rapids that are easily scouted or portaged, and many pools filled with a variety of fish. The lower stretches support premier Salmon fishing with flies, spinners, bottom bouncers, plugs, or spoons and just about any other types of tackle crafted riverside.

Historic perspective suggests that as early as Statehood in 1959, the Gulkana became a known favorite destination and somewhat protected from private ownership. This determination stemmed from the river being the perfect setting for public recreation as well as a commercial value for guided float trips, sport fishing, hunting, and wildlife viewing. Today's influences on the Gulkana can be viewed as the Trans Alaska Oil Pipeline crosses the river at the Ol' Sourdough Roadhouse take out and further recreational pursuits.

This trip is a perfectly suited float trip for up-start fly fishermen, families introducing their young children to the outdoors, and individuals wishing to sharpen their wilderness skills before tackling a more remote, more challenging trip by themselves. Note: The Gulkana River is also one of the best multi-day river float trips in Alaska for those that have concerns about flying in small aircraft.
