    Default Navigating the Yukon

    Can anyone offer any pointers or suggestions about going upriver from Circle with a prop? My concern is mostly about seeing shallow water. Any priveate property or controlled use land? Thinking about a late-summer fishing trip. Thanks

    What direction are you planning on heading from Circle. I've fished the Yukon quite a bit.

    Hi
    I did the Yukon from Whitehorse to Emmonak in a trimaran in 2004 with an 5hp and in a Catamaran with a 9.9 hp in 2006.

    I had no problems at all from Eagle to Circle.
    The Flats are a different story, watch your fishfinder that helps a lot!

    Up-river with in 10hp is slow, everything over 20hp is fine, but it all depends of the size of you boat!
    Fishing is very good in the side streams, especially on Grayling.

    A Propguard is always a very good idea !

    Saved my bud many times on my 2007 NWT trip!

    Contact Stu Varner at Stu's Go Devil in North Pole 907-488-8601
    He spends alot of time on the Yukon and has for many years. He runs a Go Devil but I am sure he will be a wealth of practical, hands on knowledge.
