“The Premier Launching Spot to Outdoor Fun!”

Company Overview

DLOA LLC was formed in 1998 to insure that there is continued access to the Lower Susitna Drainage. The drainage includes the Susitna River, Deshka River, Yentna River, and the Alexander Creek and all their tributaries. We provide year-round access to the river system via a boat launch ramp. We encompass approximately 41 acres, of which about 20 acres is use for the main parking lot to include parking, storage, a small store, indoor restrooms, and fuel.

Wet and rainy most of today. Finally a big push of Silvers up the Deshka, over 9,000 yesterday and almost 30,000 to date. Finally seeing some better numbers. With water levels sure to rise, now is the time to come and get them before they are gone till next year. ...

We have finished up on the major upgrades to our main parking area and it is now available to use. Please remember to keep the speed down to 10 to 15 mph to help keep the dust down and for safety. There will be some more work this summer on the road and repair to our septic system.

Good reports of Silvers on the Deshka. Water levels should come up some with the recent rain. Time to get them before they are gone.
