    Default Approaching Little Susitna weir....

    Folks,

    I'd like to hike 1/2 mile upstream from the Parks Highway bridge to the Little Susitna weir.
    Would I encounter a Fish & Game representative stationed there twenty-four hours/seven days a week? If so it would be neat to talk about the weir, how it operates, escapement issues, etc. Since I have been bitten with the photograph bug, I'd also like
    to take pictures of salmon crossing it.

    Picture of the weir:

    Any information you can provide would be helpful. I wouldn't want to get a ticket for a few pictures!

    Default Come on over to it...

    The Little Su canoe and raft race is next weekend 8/15. You could come out then, or walk in any day. They are there 24/7 until it closes down. You can also get there off Robin Hood off King Arthur.

    Did they even put the weir up this year? I floated it July 4th weekend from the Parks to Burma and never saw one.

    The weir is located above the Parks maybe 1 or 2 river miles. You can access it from King Arthur Dr and then turn on Robin Hood (I think.)
