    I have done the trip several times up to lake creek but not sure the exact mileage as I do it in summer and winter. I would say your best resource would be to use google earth. It will be very accurate (to within a tenth).

    Use your Alaska Gazetteer and a piece of string. You might still want to add a safety factor because the channels move around. I've been to all those places you listed, seems it was about 90 miles all the way to Donkey Slough and maybe another 10-15 to Youngstown. Just a guess though as I don't have a map in front of me. There's a "gas station" across from Lake creek and another at Yentna Station. I always brought all my own though.

    Default google earth

    You need to use the downloadable program. Go to this link Download Google Earth 5.0. After you get it installed and opened up zoom into the Yentna area. On the toolbar at the top of the screen there is a symbol of a ruler. Click on the ruler then click on the "path" tab, this allows you to follow all of the curves of the river and it will track the mileage.

    Angel Haven is a mile or two below the big turn before Youngstown Bend. I think I remember on the sled it was about 93 to 94 miles out.
