    Thumbs up Deshka Landing/Big Su Boating Conditions

    5/5
    The main launch is now accessible, but there may be a random ice chunk in the launch area at times. Boats launched going both north and south on the Big Su today. Earlier this morning the Su was open until around 11:30 when an ice jam formed near the mouth of the Deshka. As of 5 pm today river is still jammed up. One boat maneuvered his way through the jamming ice early on and he was seen past Yentna Station later in the afternoon. As of Tuesday the ice on the Yentna had been jammed up, but it seems like there was a huge flush out of the Big Su and Yentna Rivers on Tuesday night. Water conditions remain low, approximately 3 feet from the end of the culverts to the water line. Large chunks of ice and timbers pose a challenge at this time.

    We hope to see you this weekend!!

    Default Thursday Morning

    As of 8:45 am Thursday May 6th the water has dropped by a large amount overnight. The water level in the launch is at the 15th concrete rib on the ramp (21 is the edge) and about 30 feet from the culverts. I am assuming the jam up near the mouth of the Deshka washed out due to the massive drop in water, but it hasn't been confirmed yet. There weren't a lot of ice chunks floating by when I was at the water.

    The river running is great, just got back last night.
    Hardly any ice or debris left.
    Big Su is a little low but the tributaries dumping into it are all running high as usual in the spring.
