Little Nelchina / Nelchina / Tazlina Combo

Post by jskymt » Mon Aug 10, 2015 1:51 pm

So this has been done many many times by other craft, as there is road access to both put in and take out

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!
