    Default if you do a search...

    you'll find my story on how I "floated" the Anvik, but there's plenty of Grayling, & maybe some dollies...you'll wanna go up where you see shallow bends between 3/4 away from Anvik & the Anvik River Lodge...Some good shee fishing up there as well...we used spoons though on Shees...

    I ran the lodge one year in the mid-90s. There is a tributary that enters the river from the west about an hours run upriver from the lodge that gets packed with fish. There is a great pool to fish about 1 mile up from the mouth. The water is thin in that area and it could be difficult to land a float plane. The river is quite wadeable and sight fishing for kings is readily available. The year I was there the king run was good, they were pink by the time they got up to the lodge. The Yellow River enters just above the lodge, but is not a clear stream. The kings stack up at the mouth of Beaver Creek just below the lodge. There were some dollies early in the year.

    I was wondering about that. I was reading through some books and one of them mentioned bows and I was surprised.

    Wynot,
    Have you been up too McDonald Creek?
