If you are using the Jim Creek area you may want to check out the BLM website. Much of what is now being used has been selected for conveyance to native corporations. Basicly anything that is not already conveyed to the state has been selected to go to the native corp. This includes everything from Swan Lake to past Wolf Point including the Friday Creek drainage. In the Alaska BLM page go to the Spatial Data Managment System at http://sdms.ak.blm.gov/isdms/imf.jsp?site=sdms and use the zoom tool to go to the area. If you check the Generalized Land Status box it will show what the native corporations already own and what they have selected to recieve. It helps some to check the "Quads" box so you can see the river and contour lines.
I don't use the area much, but lots of other people do. If they don't have access to Jim Creek they may be pushed into my area instead. I would rather that people speak up now and keep the land open for public use. They do now own some of the land there, but this will increase their holdings enormously. I beleive they will close off their areas or at least charge a tresspass fee if they get the land.
