    Default Flood Warning Chena/Salcha

    I know this sucks but we have been getting all that rain we did not see for the past month in one weekend. The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the Chena and Salcha rivers till 4 PM Monday. If you have plans on attempting a float trip still this weekend DON'T on either river. Stay safe!

    Well all things being Chena and or the Chat. if you have plans on using our local rivers for extended type trips please note that a lot and I do mean a lot of log has made its way ino both systems. Please use safety as your priority if you have plans for this weekend or next on either river.

    Best wishes

    The Tanana was much worse than the Chena. I was constantly dodging logs and seen some pretty big stuff float by.
