Goodnews Bay

Take out involves getting to Goodnews Bay to connect with your pickup and flight back to Dillingham or Bethel. This is not often easy as the tidal influences are strong and the current reverses for 5 miles upriver and some lower river camps will flood so a tide table is a good idea. Some groups will arrange/ hire a tow from Goodnews village the last 5 miles of tidally influenced river. There are often strong upriver winds to deal with also.
