Beautiful little easy class three river,
Little Nelchina seems to run pretty clear
Big Nelchina runs a very thick light gray/white
Tazlina lake and Tazlina river offer fun continuous class II/III
Take out at Richardson Highway with great views of Wrangell Range
Fishing for greyling on side creeks
Takes about 5-6 days at a leisurly pace
Be ware of windy conditions on Tazlina Lake, may have to hike around, which would be quite possible but unpleasant following the lake shore.
Good introductory trip, didn't see anyone, awesome river. Enjoy!
