If you have a float hunt planned for anything around the Fairbanks area i.e. Chena, Salcha, Wood, Clear Creek, Good Pastor, Birch, Delta River, Tanana River, Beaver etc.... please take the time to review the AK BLM Fire Web Site.
There are many potential problems with a float hunt as of today. Hopefully we will get some much needed rain to help with the fires and water levels. Been a darn dry record setting summer to say the least.
There are something like 70 plus active fires and over 500 to date planning is important to ensure your safety.
Birch Creek fire is over 26K acres
we also have a fire up on Caribou Creek and Victoria Creek.
They have opened the Chena Rec area again as of today but if we dry out and heat up!
Tok and Delta Junction areas.
Please take the time to review the Map and plan accordingly. Might have to have a plan B on short notice.
