My wife and I plan on floating the Gulkana 9-15 July (paxson to Sourdough) for the first time and we have a few questions. We are using my 14ft Super dumer puma and using a 2.5 hp motor to cross the lake.
Are there any sections that we should be concerned with?
We are planning on bringing 4/5 wt fly rods and ultra light spinning rods. Is there any particular pattern/spinners etc you guys recommend?
Is there a drop off service that would be cheaper than driving a second car from Anchorage? Is it feasible to hitch-hike?
What's the best resource to learn the best camping spots?
We plan on mainly fishing for grayling but will there be many trout or Salmon?
Does the river tend to get blown out with too much rain?
I really appreciate any suggestions. We are just trying to get in another trip before I go back to the big sandbox.
Thanks for the help.
