Recently returned from an Alaska trip. We did a silver salmon float trip down the Kasiloff River. There was a 23 ft tidal swing that day. So, our pull out point at the river mouth was way down there. The local guides have rigged up a crazy system for getting their drift boats up the bank. They attach a cable from their rear trailer frame and run it down to the boat. Then, they just 'drive' the trailer to skid the boat up the mud bank onto a platform. Unclip the cable; back up the trailer; push the boat onto the trailer...all done. Eventhough, it looked like something a bunch of kids would come up with, the system worked dang slick. Here's a series of four pics as they recovered one of the boats.

It’s a shame the city of kasilof doesn’t consider a boat launch a priority in a city that literally lives by fishing and tourism.
there is another boat launch by mouth of the river , next to the beach but it’s on private property ( the cannery). Even if you were to put the boat there you could only do it at high tide because it’s in very rough shape.
I saw several guys get trapped in the sand trying to put the boats in on the beach .
fishing was awesome this summer and crooked creek is one of my favorite places to fish for silver salmon in Alaska.
