Kisaralik River Professional Review and Guide
"The Kisaralik is an exciting whitewater trip for experienced to intermediate paddlers. The Kisaralik offers diverse scenic contrasts--blue-green waters and rugged mountains of sandstone and shale; smooth tundra-covered hills and beautiful forests; challenging whitewater rutting through rocky bluffs; deep pools and huge, smooth boulders; narrow, twisting valleys that carry tributary streams into the river. Beginning at Kisaralik Lake, bordered by the snow capped Kuskokwim Mountains, the Kisaralik flows northwest 111 miles to the Kuskokwim River, 20 miles northeast of Bethel. A deep, clearwater river, the Kisaralik flows swiftly along a rocky streambed spiked with rapids for most of its course, with an overall river gradient of 14 feet per mile."
