Re: What Keeps You From Going to Alaska to Fish?
The confluence when the reds run is combat for sure. My wife and I seek solitude in all our trips and the Upper Kenai is not bad in Sept. There are other rafts and drift boats, but not as many as I would have expected. For true solitude, it's hard to beat a bush plane flight to a remote river. But as pointed out, it is expensive. Most our remote float trips are 10-14 days long. Amazing in every way. But the bush plane is usually $1800-2400. That is after getting to the hub town in Alaska with your gear, rafts, etc.. But there is nothing else like it.
The path of least resistance is what makes both rivers, and men, crooked.
