    Default Little Delta

    Does anyone know how long the portage is/was on the Little Delta? Apparently the river cut a new course recently, and just before you hit the Tanana you have to walk/carry all your gear. Also, is the portage along old gravel bars, or bush whacking? Thanks. j

    There are two portages. The first is about 150 yards in the river and on gravel bars. The second is shorter bushwhacking. It is a huge log jam around a blind corner with very swift water. I wouldn't count on this still being accurate come break up.

    Default bush wacking

    I floated it last year. The sweepers and log jams made it a life or death float at some times. Brutal. I will not do it again and I am a experienced white water rafter.
