    Default Fishing Carpool Thread

    We already have the Open Seat thread, but the vast majority of those posts are concerning open seats on boats. Since more fisheries are opening up and the price of gas is so high, some of our members might find it useful to share rides to the Kenai Peninsula, the Parks Highway Streams, Gulkana and beyond. If you're heading out and have room to take along another person or two, feel free to post the trip dates and details here. Posts will be deleted after the trip date to keep this thread current.

    Default Anchorage to the Russian

    After reading Brian M's account of he and Sodabiscuit's time on the Russian, I'm feeling the need to get down there soon. I've never fished the Russian and have only fished for reds once (landed 3 last summer on the Kenai), so I'd prefer to go with someone who's familiar with the area. I'm more than happy to drive my pickup- in fact I prefer to drive. Problem is I teach yoga every night Sunday through Thursday and at my day job can't get Fridays off and have to work every other Saturday from 10a to 2p. I'm looking for anyone who'd like to go, can jive with my time constraints, can help with gas, and doesn't mind fishing with a relative newbie. Also nothing more than an overnight because I've got a dog that I don't want to dump on my landlady for too long. I gotta get in on this action before I get any busier this summer.

    Default Russian River

    I fly down to Cooper Landing a couple of times a week after work or on weekends mostly. Wildman's taxi charges $3 a mile and its 10 miles from the strip to grayling parking so around $60 total. Can haul up to 3 people to split costs of taxi and maybe a little extra for the plane. 45 minute flight from Merrill, sure beats driving.

    Let me know when your thinking about heading down. Last time down we left anchorage around 7pm and returned by 11pm with our limit.

    Default Russian River

    Now that the sanctuary is open, I am willing to take a car load to the Russian tomorrow (Friday) from Anchorage. Would prefer to leave really early (6 AM?) and get back as soon as we limit. I am going to Willow the next day (Saturday) for Kings and would take people with me if that interests you too. I got no raft though. Planning on hiking down from the campground to a couple of the better holes, hoping they are there. PM me, or better yet, email me at philcannon2@gmail.com if you want a ride. Just split the gas and that's it.

    I am threatening to run down to Chitina for an overnight 4th of July weekend. I may depart Friday or possibly Thursday if I get enough interest.

    I am a newbie to Chitina dipping but have gear and looking to learn. I can take up to 3 additional riders (F150 Super Crew). Split the gas evenly. Any takers? Please call 622-1234 and leave a message I will get back to you ASAP.

    Default Kasilof Bound!

    I am heading to the Kasilof this sunday-monday or monday-tuesday, depending on work. would love to have one or two/three people ride with to help split gas and to have someone to gab with on the drive down. I have a Honda passport and it should fit most everything... I guess the only thing is I think I am going to stay the night, unless I can limit out quick, right after midnight on the second day... Let me know if you want in...

    Smile Worth mentioning here...

    ALASKA RAFT CONNECTION has shuttle services already running for Willow and Montana Creeks as well as Upper Kenai River.

    Option A. We shuttle you back up to your vehicle parked at put-in on your schedule

    Option B. We shuttle you from put in to take-out in advance so that your vehicle and/or trailer is parked at take-out.

    Option C. Our Rental SOTAR and AIRE Self-Bailers, Cats, or your personal boat are professionally prepared and shuttled point to point for a hassle-free, fun float trip.

    All options can work in combination with coordination.

    So, just for Clarity, you said this is a Bear hunt and fishing trip. Youre the guide and youll do it for "3500 each for two people".

    I think people are mistaking this for a 10 day grizz hunt for 2 people for 3,500...... Thats not what youre saying.. is it ?

    I am looking to pool up with some Steelheaders headed South. I have all the gear, ready to split costs, available most days. I enjoy fishing with folks either above or below my skill level, its all fun. I am new to the area, that is my only hindrance. I live in Palmer.

    Default Headed to the Russian

    I am leaving Wasilla today around 11am (sorry for the short notice) to go fish the Russian/Kenai and have room for up to 3 more people. I plan on staying over night fishing for a limit today and a limit on the AM hours tomorrow. If you have any interest get a hold of me on the boards. We will split the gas and parking fee at the campground.

    Thanks,

    Russ

    Default heading to kasilof 6/29

    Thinking of heading to kasilof Tue morning. Leaving anchorage at 230 am. If someone's wants to go, pm me. Also, I can drop someone off, like baggage, at Russian and pick up on way back around 2. This is mad dash down and back.
    The only thing worse than a Subaru is the as*hole who drives it.
