Has anybody heard a forecast for Lake Creek Kings this year? I've got a bunch of folks coming up for a float around King time. I'm considering flying into Chelatna and then down, but if there's not going to be great king fishing, I'm thinking I should just avoid the Lake Creek professional outfitter crowds monopolizing the good camp sites and just do the Gulkana -- no fly-in costs, and a little more scenic, to my eye.
Any thoughts? If you had Outsiders coming up in late June, which would choose: Gulkana from Paxon down, or Lake Creek?
