Chena River float
Anyone been on the Chena recently? It looks low in town and was wondering how up around Rose Hip was. I've got a 16' Cat.
Also, I'd like to do a 3 hr. float to take some new people to rafting out. I want to go on the Chena but not through town. Any thoughts on access from CHSR?
Dam to Nordale
Try the dam to Nordale. Not too many jet boats. Also try this link.
Water is still down a bit making ofr slow going in any inflatable. **** to Nordal is a great float expect to take at least 9-10 Hours with stick time unless the water volume picks up.
Rose Hip down to the **** is a long haul and I do mean Long.
Third Bridge down to 40 mile nice float water is extremely tight at the start so luanch on the right.
I just did this float on sunday. Went from Nordale to pike's (by princess lodge.) Took about 9.5 hours by raft - we paddled 85% of the time. I'd suggest putting in below angle rocks to avoid the shallows.
