With Denali (Mount McKinley) and the Alaska Range dominating the view, a float down this section of the swift, powerful Susima is a pleasure. Ten miles into the trip that begins at Gold Creek, Curry Ridge rises on the west side of the river between the Parks Highway and the Alaska Range. Be sure to take the far left channel above Talkeetna if you want to go ashore at Talkeetna. The Susitna is highly braided, with many shallow riffles and sweepers. A cold, glacial river, it cannot be taken lightly. Paddle carefully, and enjoy the scenery. Be cautious of cold, swift, silty water; difficulty reading channels and seeing rocks, and logjams. Fish: Arctic grayling; Dolly Varden; king, coho, sockeye, pink, and chum salmon. Wildlife: Caribou, grizzly and black bear, moose, wolf, beaver, bald eagle, migratory waterfowl.
