Made the decision to float the Noatak River with a Pro Pioneer Summer of 2009. Looking for some advice, resources and would like to anyone that has done this float.
A rough idea of what I want to do.
Fly out of Bettles to head of Noatak.
Float to the sea, boat pickup to Kotzebue and Fly out.
What I would like to do also.
Get a wolf or two.
Get a caribou, if weather and distance allows keeping meat in good condition.
With the above being said, this is my first real resource. Looking for any books covering this trip, best dates advice, how long will it take, better fly out locations, what fishing is like, reputable taxi service from Bettles or if there is a better location to fly from. What is the water like, Class I, II, etc. sweepers, log jams?
Know it is a lot, however, I know there is a lot of knowledge that reads this forum, so advice on where to start would be helpful.
