Looks like if you're planning on hitting the Upper Kenai this weekend you need to change your plans thanks to Obummer.

NOTICE: I just got word and confirmation from both State Parks and the Kenai Refuge manager that the entire refuge area of the Kenai River are closed to access due to the govt shut down. State troopers will be doing the enforcement. This will be from sportsmans all the way to the lower swan signs on the middle Kenai.
I would imagine that all access points to the river and out of the river will have locked gates. If the ramp at Kenai lake is open i would highly suggest you make sure of your take out and its accessibility.
Remember though, the federal lands are closed so you are not allowed to be in those areas.
