I am hopefully getting my first raft of the summer and want to float from oilwell road down to the deshka and I have several questions about this.
1. I've heard putting in at oilwell instead of petersville doesn't take much from the trip. Is this true? Our main purpose will be to fish and we want to target salmon and rainbows.
2. How is the fishing on this creek and the tributarys. We are looking at early july, I know king fishing is closed up that high but we want a good float with good rainbow chances. Is this possible? If you've fished it what did you use? What did you catch? And are there any areas you would really focus on.
3. Timing, both how long would it take? and when would be the ideal time to maximize good rainbow and salmon fishing be?
4. Shuttle service, who provides a reliable cost effective way to get from the deshka to talkeetna? Also where should we think about floating too? I've heard power boats and rafts don't mix well at the susitna-deshka mouth. Is there a better place to pull out and be shuttled from?
Thanks for any help you guys may be.
