I am starting the planning for a float trip late August/early September next year and would like some recomendations and advice. My priorities are as follows:
I am considering the Kwethluk, Alagnak, Arolik and any others that you think would fit my trip profile. How crowded does the Alagnak get during this time of year? I am planning on starting the trip out of Bethel with the beleif that there is a smaller chance of weather preventing us from getting into Bethel to start the trip than there would be for King Salmon or Dillingham. Is my thinking correct on this? Would it make any sense to start the bush flight out of Anchorage? I will need to rent a raft and all camping equipment.
- 7 day trip
- class I/II water
- big/plentiful rainbows
- few other people
If anybody gets down to Colorado, I have guided the high country for almost 10 years and would be happy to assist. Thanks!
