    Default Seldovia area

    Was looking for a new area to play around in and was looking through my atlas and noticed there was a road that went into some good looking area.Just wondering if you can drive your truck or if it is a 4wheeler trail trail? thanks for any info

    Default road

    The last I heard all of the bridges were out and so it was impassable for trucks.

    Default Plus allot of the land off the road is Private

    You will have to look into who owns most the land back there. All the bridges are out. The state is toying with the idea of rebuilding the road so that Port Graham and English Bay/Nanwalek would be connected to a better airport and the ferry dock in Seldovia This was after they looked at the cost of putting both of those in at those two villages. Figured it was cheaper to build the road. But lotsa of private land over there.

    you can't even get a mountain bike on the road, the road bed is totally grown over with alder.
    there are quite a few logging roads over there that do not show on maps though. there are no moose to speak of, lots of black bear, and access to goat country.
    that said, bear hunters i drop off in the park (on foot) have about triple the success rate of hunters i have dropped off with wheelers at jakalof dock.

    Almost all the land out the bay road is lined on both sides by native land. They have gates up and signs for no trespassing. As you go in towards the city from the Jackelof dock the land is almost all private owned, the natives sold it after the settlement deal. The road area is hunted hard by the locals so as Homerdave said wheeling is hard to get a bear. The bear's know the deal real well.There is a good deal of land with very little access in reality.

    The road to Red Mountain is still drivable by truck; it's privately maintained, partly with donated funds. Good bear hunting up there during berry season, and a goat hunt. Jakolof Bay has good duck hunting and clamming , Tutka Lagoon's a 2-mile hike for great snagging in July. All in all, a pretty good place to play, but this side of the bay's best done from a boat, not a truck. Endless opportunities from the water.

    Default clamming

    Is the good clamming for steamers? What type of ground do you look for?

    Hope I didn't steel you thread too much.

    Steamers and butters. The best ground is the stuff that's underwater 350 days of the year
