Water levels on Chatanika
Looking to paddle the Chatanika from Mile 39 to the Elliot this Saturday. I see the water levels are reading 8-8.5ft. I also keep hearing how low the water is on the Chatanika. Anybody know what a reasonable water level is for this stretch of the river? I seen that flood conditions register at 12ft. but wondering if I will be dragging my raft the 15 river miles at 8-8.5ft. I would also be interested in any alternatives to the Chatanika for this weekend that I can get to from Fairbanks within an easy drive. I appreciate any experienced advice.
I'm looking to do the same thing soon for my anterless permit next month. I see there were no replies. What did you learn?
