I am planning a float trip for brown bears. My father is coming up from outside and he does not get around as much as he used to. I am looking to go for an economical float close to home with a good chance at a bear( perferably Brown). We are either going to float from oilwell road to the mouth of the Deshka or East Fork Chulitna to Talkeetna. Has anyone done these floats and would you recommend them or not for bears? For clarification I am looking at the first week or so of September. That is the only time our schedules allow.

Any advice would be appreciated.
