We're trying to plan a trip to float the Gulkana from the 3rd to the 6th. We heard to float from Paxson Lake to the take out (sourdough?) is about 50 miles but about a ten day trip if you're looking to camp, fish and not paddle the entire day. Is this the case? Otherwise, the next option is from sourdough to the bridge at the Richardson, which I hear can be done in a day.
Is any of this info correct? Ideally, we're looking for a 3-4 day float where we have time to fish and camp and don't have to rush. Also, I heard the best fishing is at the confluence of the Tangle Lake and Paxson Lake outflows so the where we want to put in.
Any ideas or recommendations?
