    Default Little Su - Water Conditions?

    Anyone have any recent info on the clarity and level of the Little Susitna River, in view of the recent rains? Hate to waste the gas to go there if the water's no good. My parents are visiting from Idaho and would love to take them on the river this week. Any info appreciated....

    Based on recent streamflow data I would go if there is no more heavy rain.
    The river is dropping quickly and probably clearing just as fast.

    River is fine.

    The silvers are farther dowbn than I went today. I went about 2 miles down and hooked into 6 chums and caught three of them.

    Water is higher than it normally would be this time of year but it is just fine for fishing. It is still quite a bit clearer than during King season.

    See, and I did that from 2500 miles away.
    Makes it hard to catch fish though. I would have liked to hammer some chums!!

    Is the Little Su worth fishing from the bank below the boat launch?

    Personally I would give it a couple more days for walking.
