    Default Matanuska

    Are there any books on floating the Matanuska? I'm planning to buy Jettmar's book, is it in there?
    I'm interested in floating below lion's head down to palmer.
    Thanks,
    Scott

    Default You don't really need a book.

    It's braided class I/II. Worst hazard is getting caught in a shallow braid and avoiding wood. I have pinned an 18 foot cat in there before in a tight slot, but managed to free it in less than an hour. Fun, mellow, lots of gravel bars to camp on.
