    The kandik is on the north side of the Yukon, almost across from the Charley, so to get there, drive up the steese to Circle, then upstream 60-70 miles maybe a little more, havent been there but looked at it in the maps.

    DWlong,

    Kandik has really changed since the 2005 and 2005 fires. When the river is low in the fall (which is typical) there are now several riffles that many jetboats can't make it past. First real bad one is "Three mile reef" three miles from the mouth. Last few years most everyone is turning around there.

    Nation is somewhat better, but it's much smaller and you can't get too far up it. There are no caribou on either drainage. Rains pretty much determine conditions in fall. With some rains of course it makes a huge difference.
    Best,

    AKgramps,
    Thanks for the information. I tried a search myself but was unsuccessful.

    Bushrat,
    You answered my question. Thanks.

    Default I agree

    I tried it last year, and what was said above is right on the money. I was running it with a wooly at pretty high water. The 3 mile reef is a definite obstacle. Maybe with a jon boat you could pull it up and over then go.
