I have a 21' semi-v custom boat with twin prop motors. I'm looking to explore rivers around/near (relatively speaking of course) Fairbanks for potential moose hunting areas this/next fall. I know it's not the ideal boat for interior rivers, it was a compromise boat to be able to also go out on PWS. I've been in Alaska for nine years now, but this will be my first summer on the rivers.
I have zero experience on the interior rivers, so I'm looking for some ideas on where to start. I'm looking for rivers that aren't too shallow because I need at least 12" and probably 14" once loaded down. I know water levels drop in the fall, so I need some ideas that will still have enough water then.
I'm not looking for anyone's moose hunting spot, merely something along the lines of what areas of what river I could run with my boat. I'll go do the exploring myself this summer, heck that's half the fun.
I'm definitley going to go explore the Yukon, but I was wondering if I can put in at Circle or do I have to go up to the Dalton Highway to put in. I've heard it can be some thin water near Circle.
