Hello folks, i was planning on floating down the Yukon R. this summer. Looking for information on how big the rapids are. I was maybe going start from the Alaskan boarder and end up in Tanana or Gallena. The other option was to make the trip longer and start from either dawson Canada, or from whitehorse canada. I was wondering if anybody could give me info on how the water is in early spring, knowing how big the rapids are if any. If there are any rapids are there any prtage around them?I have been in Alaska for about 4 years now and love the state. I grew up conoeing on a lake, the st. croix river in wisconson and the missippi in Minnesota. I realize the yukon is a big and fast current but that is the thrill of the adventure. Any info on this would be great thanks.
