I am planning a trip for two down the Tal for the 4th week of June 2008. With a put in at Judd Lake and take out on the Skwentna just down stream from the confluence with the Tal. Speaking primarily about the the float, what might we expect. We are planning 6 days, and have experience with Alaska rivers and will be in a 14' self bailer.
I have reviewed the archives and Jettmars book (nothing in Strahans or Embicks books) and have found little detail. Jettmars book contained the best information so far. Typical water levels that time of year (especially in Tal Creek), realistic expectations in Hells Gate and other canyon sections.
If you have been there, I would be interested in learning from your experience. General comments or specifics, all are appreciated.
Of course GPS coordinates where you caught that monster Rainbow or King are always appreciated.
