    Default Deshka?

    Any updates on the Deshka? My son is going to run up it tomorrow with a friend and was wondering what the conditions are like?

    They are saying Big chunks of ice on there site. Could be done with a sturdy boat... Not a big fan of beating and banging early in the season. Always enough of that by the time it's all said and done. LOL

    He got back to the landing about 3:00 this afternoon. He said there were some ice chunks going down the Big Su, they then went up the Deshka about 10 miles and didn't have any ice to speak of. All went well on the trip. Thanks for the info.

    No fishing, they were setting up a fishing camp. Didn't see any bear, saw 6 moose along the river.
