Because of easy road access and closeness to Anchorage and Palmer-Wasilla, the Little Susitna (Susitna means "sandy river" in Dena'ina) is one of Southcentral Alaska's most popular fishing streams. The lower river is a perfect paddle for novices who enjoy getting out into the wilds and doing some fishing. Full of twists, turns, and sharp bends, the river widens as it descends through the Susitna Valley. Beginning as meltwater from the Mint Glacier in the Talkeetna Mountains, the little Susitna, or little Su, begins as a clear, rushing mountain stream flowing through a constricted canyon over huge rocks and boulders, dropping at a rate of 160 feet per mile to the Fishhook Road bridge. It eventually slows to just 2 to 4 miles per hour, meandering muddily across marshy lowlands, and reaches Cook Inlet after 110 miles. The terrain changes from steep mountain and hillsides to flat and rolling lowlands covered with forests of spruce and hardwood. The middle section of the river, particularly in the Nancy Lake Creek area, is characterized by wetlands.
