Thread: Chulitna River Rafting

  1. #1

    Default Chulitna River Rafting

    Anyone here ever rafted the middle or east fork of Chulitna River? Seems to be gorgeous country up there and a fun trip. Seen people launch at the east fork highway crossing. Where do you take out? How's the fishing? Salmon, trout? Assume the float would take a couple of days maybe more?

    Thanks!

    Send quite a few raft rentals up to the Chulitna.

    Mostly a mix of folks: various levels of experience, locals, military, to on-resident and foreign float trippers wanting good scenery, sport fishing, wildlife viewing, some hunting. Perfect fit if seeking savings in a no-fly-out, multi-day with great roadside logistics.

    I ended up floating the lower section in the fall. It's silty where I was and we only saw a few spawned silvers and dogs. The scenery is spectacular.


    I've heard the trout fishing is good in the east fork, of course it's supposed to be clear water.

    Here are a couple of threads that address access and the length of the float (of course that depends on water levels). I PM'd Jim Strutz and Birdstrike and they were both very helpful.
