RIVER FLOAT TRIP DESCRIPTION: By floatplane from Lake Hood, fly for an hour to remote lake located away from road systems near Beluga Mountain of the south side of Denali National Park. We start our scenic, whitewater, and fishing float trip in the foothills of the Alaska Range. The Talachulitna begins flowing from small stream-like, shallow Talachulitna Creek out of Judd Lake, a pocket-sized mirror-like kettle pot.

For reference the Talachulitna River is located on USGS maps TYONEK C-4 and D-4

Long before today's colorful rafters and fisherman historical records note that the Athabaskan visited the productive hunting grounds for Moose and Bear. In fact the river gets part of its name from the river's native tongue Tunuilch'ulyutnu that means river where people killed one another in Water. According to folklore the dispute was over a fur coat. Gold seekers also explored the Tal region. Today, this river system is one of south central Alaska's most productive sport fisheries. Throughout our trip, you'll float the rivers course, 65 miles due north into surrounding Boreal forest, drop through jagged Hell's Gate, and descend fun-filled whitewater canyons to its confluence with the swift, glacial fed Skwentna River. The river  journey ends in the small town of Skwentna, known as one of the early checkpoints during the 1049 mile Iditarod sled dog race.  One option is to put in or take out at the 1/2 way point to shorten the trip or avoid the whitewater sections.  To spend a bit less time paddling the Skwentna, another take out opportunity is just downstream of Shell Creek at the old cable crossing and gauging station.

The Talachulitna offers first class fishing opportunities for seven species of fish including: Arctic Grayling, Rainbow Trout, King, Sockeye, Coho, Pink, and Chum Salmon. The river's character is a greenish clear to tea color water involving several sweepers and fast current. Whitewater sections lead to Hell's Gate (or the Notch) class I-III+, (relatively straightforward... some technical moves through easily negotiable constrictions... yet just enough to get the adrenaline going... feel the rush , but scouting is highly recommended).  The Gate section is followed by by S-turn canyons with fun standing waves. The Tal also provides excellent video and photographic possibilities encompassed by majestic landscapes, wildflowers, and viewable wildlife.
