    Default Crooked Creek (Kenai Peninsula)

    Anyone out there floated Crooked Creek from the highway to the Kasilof confluence? If so, what can you tell me about the float? Challenges? Camping options? Fishing quality?

    Thanks!

    I used to fish for Steelhead there every spring. I've walked up and down, but never floated it. What I remember of the river is that it is small and shallow with deep pools on the bends. It would probably be more of a drag than a float. When the hatchery was raising Steelies it sure was a fun fishery. Please take my limited knowledge with a grain of salt. I have not fished Crooked Creek in a long time.

    Its too small and shallow to float. In most places its only a step or 3 to get across it and 8 inches deep except a few small holes. Just camp at the state campground. I have never caught anything but pinks and dollies, heard of a few silvers but never caught or seen one. There are way better places to fish than there.

    ^^^^This. It's probably been over 20 years since I fished Crooked Creek, but I used to do it every spring and it was a wonderful little fishery. Actually, I just went and dug up an old photo, and it looks like it was 23 years ago the last time I fished it. Man, that brings back some good memories. It could probably be floated in one of the new little pack rafts that are out these days but, probably really wouldn't be worth your time.
    Now after looking at this picture, it got me thinking, daaamn 23 years, and I haven't aged a bit.

    OK Greg, will you stop with the fake pictures. That's not you. That's the guy who pitched for the Mets last night.

    You guy's are killin' me. I'll take the rep point but I don't think I deserve it. I think the definition of a mullet is, all business up front, party in the back. If my cap would've been off, you could've seen that that hairdo was all party, baby!!
