    Same spot. I think there are a few guys that put in near the old glenn bridge, but I've always dropped in there at the glenn.

    akriverunner,

    I have a 23 foot phantom and have no problem launching under the Glenn Highway at the Knik River Bridge. About 20 feet or so this side of the big line of rocks that are on the bank. The slope into the river is not as steep there. Once the river comes up, its way easy to launch and retrieve your boat. If one knows what they are doing its cake to launch there. I hope to see you there... "fishon"

    Anybody know who that was? Maybe we can get a report? I did see that a fan boat made it all the way to the glacier already but is there enough water for our jetboats yet? Thanx... "fishon"

    I ran up to friday creek in my jmax no problem. launch is kinda soft. river is easy to read and low. saw lots of sheep down low and 7 winter kills. glacier seems doable. we only turned back cuz of a late start
