    Default Gulkana: Sourdough to Bridge?

    Has anyone floated from Sourdough down to the Richardson bridge? How long did it take? Is it too low to do it now?

    I thought this might a nice float this weekend and the sockeyes should be less red than putting in by Paxson. Also, we only have to days -- Saturday and Sunday.

    Any thoughts appreciated!

    Default Float it

    Floated in kayaks two years ago with my sons Boy Scout Troop, took the better part of a day, but was a great float.

    I have done it a few times and it is a good over-knighter. In a canoe it goes fast but the raft will slow you down. Plan on 12 hours in a raft and enjoy the trip!

    Walt,
    I do appreciate it.

    Actually I posted and was looking to go last weekend, but we went down and had a great time (though I breached my canoe on a rock and fixed temporarily with duck tape).

    I went down with my girlfriend but am ready to embarked on a 2 week journey down the Richardson, Valdez, Kenai and Kodiak and planning to do that float tomorrow and Sunday. Thanks for the time frame!
