Thread: Koyukuk or Beaver Creek?

  1. #1

    Default Koyukuk or Beaver Creek?

    The wife, Buffy, and I are planning a float trip in our SOAR 16 in mid-June. She wants to do the South Fork of the Koyukuk down to the Yukon and I like to try Beaver Creek to the Yukon bridge. Anybody done the South Fork of Koyukuk and know what conditions are like in that first part before it slows down? Or anybody know how hard the first part of Beaver Creek is when you put in on Nome Creek?

    The south fork is not slow at the Dalton Bridge. Where does it slow down? I have canoed from Bettles to Allekakett and it wasn't slow there either. Must be slow down by Huslia.

    The Koyukuk, never all that fast, starts slowing quite a bit after Hughes, especially before, through, and after the big bend of Cutoff Slough. Depending on water levels, weather, paddling effort, etc, it takes around 2.5 to 3 weeks to paddle from the Dalton Highway to the Yukon River.
