    Wink Crossing The Sag In September?

    Looking for any info for safe places to cross the Sag to get out of the Corridor off the haul road, north of Galbraith near the waste station. Please PM me unless you don"t mind thousands reading it . Thanks Bill.

    Default anywhere

    Pick a spot, you can cross anywhere as long as you have a small raft, theres no real spot to cross on foot, a guy drowned a few years ago trying to cross it on foot

    I agree, i have seen big Caribou on the other side and have walked up and down the Sag looking for a place to cross on foot with no luck. You will need a raft for sure. Should be pretty easy in a raft, the river is pretty swift but not to deep and it is rather braided in places. So there are better places than others. Good luck and be carrefull.

    Default Ice Cut

    The Ice Cut seemed pretty flat, deep and doable.

    Default ice cut

    Ice cut might be on a very low water year, but normally the main channel is wast deep and high volume

    Default It depends...

    My wife and I crossed at Icecut in Sept '05 on foot. She's 5'1''. The chest waders were a necessity and the leki poles were a must too.
    Some years its not possible.

    I had my aire raft in the truck but never used it.
    Crossing with a trophy bull bou on our backs was fun, but we managed. Take your time.
