Tikchik River in Wood Tikchik Park. Tikchik is a longer float and we choose it when a relaxed wilderness float with high scenic value, great wildlife – birding, big game, and fine camping are the primary goals and fly fishing is secondary. We fly in to Upnuk Lake, a vast tundra landscape, which is glacially carved out of the Wood River Mountains. At Upnuk Lake there are good numbers of Lake Trout and once on the river Grayling take the fly and Sockeye are available to make great fillets for barbeque in Alder smoke. Birdlife is prolific, wildflowers are too. Art projects and photography. The Mountains nearby. Rainbow Trout at rivers end.
