    Default Koyukuk Hunt...Need advice

    So, I was fortunate enough to draw the DM828 hunt this year and am looking for anyone out there that may have knowledge navigating the Yukon and Koyukuk Rivers. I am not as concerned with the hunting as I am in getting there. Is there anyone that would be willing to share their experiences and knowledge of these rivers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks,

    Dave

    What type of boat are you going to be using and where are you putting in?

    Default Sorry about that

    rambling raven, I should have given more information. We are running a 26 ft Hewes Craft and plan to put in at the bridge north of Fairbanks.

    Running the river down in that will be a piece of cake. We have ran boats that big down before. Most of your channels are 20ft deep.

    Where are you located at? I have the channels well mapped out.
    Charlie at Inland barge will hook you up as well for a few bucks. You definately want his number with you in case of a mishap and you need barge assistance getting your boat back up river. It's happend to many.

    What season are you going. Early or late?

    Mr. Raven,

    I also drew the 828 tag. I have a 25 ft inboard jet. I would be very interested in any maps you have that you would share.
