    Default Gulkana River with Photos

    Ok Guys. I could not find a way to drop the Pics from the cell phone so I took 6 more from Sailor's Pit and the Bridge.

    The river has dropped a bunch, I am guessing 2-3 feet from Saturday when we ran the lower section.

    Take a look at the bluff photos as they are from the Camp Ground bluff. There is a new gravel bar where the good King hole use to be. I am guessing that we will all be searching for those new holes this summer. If it keeps dropping like this we will start renting rafts by friday and I think we will see the Kings coming through around the 18th. So give me a call if your ready to hit the river. Keep in mind that there are LOTS of sweepers and strainers in the river. You guys who are looking at a camping trip down from Sourdough, the bars will be very muddy for the next week as the water recedes.

    My daughter is working at Miles Lake and the fish numbers are low and she attributes treat to the colder water keeping the fish at the mouth of the Copper. She is the Fish Biologist in training so I think she may be on to something. They are tagging some large kings as this is a 5th year return, very few Jacks,

    Just comeback from the take out on the Rich and the river is way down! From yesterday afternoon till this morning we have seen about 1.5 foot drop. The take out is a mess but workable. Lots of silt/mud to deal with and the river is littered with lots of new fire wood!

    My best recommendation is you can run it now if your good on the oars but if your a rookie I would stay off her until the weekend. My first groups will be going out on Friday. My rule of thumb is safety first and no one gets hurt. At this rate the lower section will be near normal in 5 more days. We have our first Sourdough group going out Saturday. My only concern on the Sourdough - Bridge section is where do you camp? Muddy!

    Time to get rafting!
