Thread: Shell Creek with an airboat

    Default Shell Creek with an airboat

    Has anyone run an airboat from the Skwentna River, up Shell Creek, and into Shell Lake?

    Not possible due to waterfall and trees across channel. Oh and the ADFG weir on the upper end would completely stop you. How about you take a canoe downstream from Shell and actually check it out.

    I don't know about all of it, but the fish counter near the lake would be an obstacle, as mentioned above.

    I was planning to ride it one of these days off. Sometimes it's pretty hard to see what's under a mile of snow, but if this weather keeps up I might canoe it next weekend.
