    Default 20 Mile River

    I'm debating buying a 16' cataraft with an outboard motor attachment... do you think it would be possible to bring that up the 20 Mile river for fishing?

    Default 16' powered cat on 20 mile

    Possible? Yes, but everything would need to be in your favor: weight/hp, water levels, boater skill set, and don't plan on going that far. Been up a ways in a 16 semi-V w/ a 35 and three guys. It was OK but our boatman made it happen.
    Running a prop through those faster moving shallow areas requires a little luck and the ability to read the water.

    Short answer: Get a Jon boat if you want to do 20 mile and watch out for big inboards hauling a_ _ .

    Think you can ride the train to Spencer glacier and float out from there. Never done it but looked into it a while back. Pretty sure I remember it would require more $$ than I wanted to spend, plus hiking into the put in w/ a boat on your back is like so 15 years ago.
