A Day on the Delta Clearwater – Alaska

The Delta Clearwater river is about an hour and a half southeast of Fairbanks Alaska. The canoe trip consists of: Eight miles of paddling and fishing on the brilliantly clear D.C., then into the massive glacier fed Tanana River for three miles, then a mile and a half up stream paddle through a slough and finally another mile or so across Clearwater Lake to the takeout. The river trip by itself is spectacular but when you add world class fishing for trophy quality Arctic Grayling, you have wilderness perfection.
