From headwaters flowing off Beluga Mountain, the Talachulitna River courses south then northerly for 64 miles to join the Skwentna River. Talachulitna Creek, a major tributary, begins northwest of Judd Lake and flows easterly through Talachulitna and Judd lakes to empty into the Talachulitna River. A small clearwater river with excellent fishing, the Tal is one of Southcentral Alaska's most popular fly-in float-fishing trips. Tal Creek is shallow, meandering, and narrow. Beaver dams occasionally go across the main channel.
