The Talachulitna River Float is a favorite among locals and visitors to our state. This river winds from the scenic Tordillo Mountains to the Skwentna River, right onto the wintertime Iditarod Trail. This river provides fantastic fishing, camping, and floating.
The Float Begins at Judd Lake were the Talachulitna Creek flows out. This section of river is quite shallow, meandering, and narrow Class I waters. This section most often requires lining or dragging the boats, especially at low water. From the confluence with the Talachulitna River the river widens and deepens considerably with many camping and fishing options.
