    Sorry to say you will find ample company on the Chena this time of year. Chums are out and about so with luck you might find bear above 20 mile.

    Concerning getting away from it all that is just about impossible from 50 Mile CHSR down to the flood control project all other hunting on the river below that for the most part is bow only (Most part).

    There are still a ton of road hunters up and down the road from 44 mile through rose hip int he areas you are allowed to shoot.

    The river has fallen to normal levels which makes for nice rafting however prop jobs tend to shear pins this time of year once you make your way far enough up river.

    Grouse numbers and bunnies numbers are up so that might be a viable option if you decide to boat your way up from Transmitter rd if access is available to you are the Flood Control launch if you don't.

    (Keep your eye out for tight corners and other boats in the two rechanneled areas of the river (You can't miss them and must take your boat up them)

    Hope this helps! Good Luck.
