I'm planning to run up the Talkeetna this weekend with my North River to scout an area for a possible September bowhunt. I don't plan to go farther than Sheep River. I'm used to running the Yetna but haven't run the Talkeetna. Any words of wisdom from the experienced would be helpful. I've talked to folks that say it's easy and then I've had others look at me like my nose was upside down. Will there be enough water to run down river with a heavy loaded boat in late season? Is it a Sunday drive or NASCAR?
