I have relatives comming up Mid June who would like to do a one day float trip, maybe with a chance at a King salmon while they are at it. I'm thinking one of the Parks streams would fit the ticket with putting in at the highway and takout at the Willow confluence.
I know Willow is a popluar trip but I'm a little concerned about crowding, plus the bulk of the river is single hook lure which given the current forcast on the run could be an iffy proposition.
The Little Willow allows bait and treble hooks and appears to be navagitable by canoe from Google earth, and I've seen a few reports that rafters regularaly do it plus it gives a shot at several confluences that are not accesible by foot. (i.e. better chance of catching fish.) and appears to be more of the day trip as opposed to the 3 hour Willow tour.
but looks are not reality.
hence the forum post... anyone have any advise?? thanks
