    Default nope

    No way bro - Yukon generally breaks up in middle May - after the Tanana and other smaller rivers. At this rate (still cooold) it might be later?? If your going up next week - bring your snowmachine! Sorry...

    Google the Alaska Web Cams. Should be some river pics there.

    Default I seriously doubt it!

    The Tanana is still locked up tight and will be for a few more weeks at the earliest.

    Default Ain't quite spring yet

    Daniel,

    You've got some waiting to do yet. Zero degrees here this morn and light snow and I'm about 30 air miles north of the Yukon, which is still frozen.

    Rule of thumb for break-up on the Yukon in the Galena area and down river a bit below the Koyukuk is Mothers Day.
    Now what ?
