RIVER TRIP DESCRIPTION: By floatplane from Lake Hood, you'll fly westerly through wingspan-wide, jagged and snow covered mountain passes into the Alaska's Lake Clark Region. As you cruise over the Cook Inlet in search of white Beluga Whales you'll often get a glimpse of several 10,000'+ active volcano summits.  Allured into shooting the entire float trips provisions of media, an inviting turquoise lake emerges in the expanse midst craggy peaks, textured hillsides, and poly-chromed tundra landscapes.  Framed by crevassed glaciers and eternally snow-capped rugged summits of Lake Clark National Park and Preserve; fittingly named Turquoise Lake lies at the base of Mt. Telaquana.  Turquoise Lake is the drop off and put in for your wilderness raft and kayak float trip adventure on the Mulchatna River.

The Mulchatna River surges swiftly downstream west out of the mountains for 5-7 days prior to its confluence with the crystal clear Chilikadrotna River tributary where it nearly doubles in overall volume. The Mulchatna River's bluish-green waters rush through open tundra, descend canyon, then in the course of a few days hastens into forested hill country where sweepers, strainers, log jams, boulder gardens, shallows, narrows, and spiked rapids that demand river skills and alertness at all times. One stretch of the river drops hundreds of feet within very few miles. It is clear to witness this significant decent as the river takes on a keen downhill perspective.

Fishing is exceptional! State record sized Arctic Grayling along with nice sized Lake Trout can be had right from the floatplane drop off. Dolly Varden Char and Rainbow Trout are abundant throughout the river drainage, and Salmon fishing can be top notch. Brown Bears heavily forage amongst the log jams taking spent Salmon that often mill around or hang trapped in the entangled trees, branches, and debris.  Be especially prepared for very up close bear encounters and the circumstances that often may develop when negotiating or portaging around logjams.  It's always astonishing to witness just how inconceivably powerful and fast a startled Brown Bear will make an expressway exit through terrain that would be near impenetrable or impassible for humans.

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 and pristine diversity of Alaska's most 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 Mulchatna River exhibits stunning scenery, offers premier angling for several species of fish, has thrilling stretches of fun whitewater, features great hiking, makes for some beautiful camping, and provides excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing (especially bears). The entire drainage once supported some of the largest populations of Barren Ground Caribou throughout Alaska. Some of the same herds still reside traversing the riversides, however today the main herd is broken up into much smaller bands covering an even greater amount of territory.
