    Default Lil Su

    Anybody ever hunt duckss near/off of the Lil su? I've fished that river a hundred times but have never got up over the banks to see what lies on the other sides.

    A ways down stream from the landing there is habitat where the banks start to widen out. There are a few very nice looking oxbow cut off ponds and flooded grass areas behind the alders.

    Keep in mind that with all the habitat in that area once you flush some birds they will not be coming back.

    I have also been thinking about running down to the mouth of the Little Su for Ducks. I know people hunt down there but I believe most of them get there via plane. Could anyone that has boated and/or hunted the mouth provide a little more insight as to the conditions down there? I have been roughly 3/4 the way down fishing but does the lower portion of the river get real skinny this time of year and how far down before I have to start worrying about the tides? Thanks!!

    How skinny? I got stuck last week above the power line before low tide about half a rubber boot deep. If you are in the channel there is 1.5-8 feet of h2o. The tidal influence goes about 1-2 river miles past the airstrip...I would guess about 8-10 river miles upstream from the mouth.

    I found some salt sloughs/ponds but you are going to have to figure out a way to let your boat hang from the bluff cliffs to get to them. I think that I can do it with my boat but I will have to spend the night or have perfect timing on the tides. I am not sure that I want to cross the inlet in the dark.

    I am not even sure that it is worth it as there wasn't that many birds working. If there are no others hunting birds then it could be really really slow.

    NOW - you want to chase geese? They are out in the delta on the mud flats like crazy right now. I even got an idear how to hunt them but not the right kind of boat. Anyone got a camo'd river boat that they wouldn't mind letting go dry I bet you could slaughter them over deeks. A lot of them haven't even seen a deek yet!
