    Yepper don't even try floating 48 -50 mile done. Stick to the third bridge and down and that is also a little tight from the start.

    yeah, mile 44 to the first bridge is about 4-5 hours, no major obstacles. Lots of grayling right now, should be fun. lower water, clear, good stuff. have fun!

    We (jdcollins) and I were going to float it tomorrow but looks like there is no access after 15 mile right now due to the fire. They have the entire hot springs road on lock down. So looks like its delta Clearwater instead.

    Roger that. My buddy lives at MP 22, and they evacuated yesterday. Fires burning toward Yukon Training Area, South FK Chena, and around. Good call.

    be safe out there.
