    Default King Salmon River

    Anyone know anything about the King Salmon River which runs into the Upper Nushagak? I hear that it is a beautiful little river, small, winding, shallow, class 1 & 2 riffles, and loaded with fish (salmon & large rainbows). You land on a very small lake at the headwaters. There is one huge log jam that needs to be portaged around and also because there are so many fish and the river is small and shallow, that there are many brown bears. Sound familiar to anyone? My friends and I are planning a trip in late August and could use all the info we can get. Thanks a heap!

    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
