    Default Upper Tangle Lakes

    Anyone have insights about canoeing the Upper Tangle Lakes.... upstream from the Denali Hwy bridge at the campground? Planning for a Nelchina caribou hunt (I have a permit) using that route so any other thoughts about that route or how to get to the caribou are appreciated. Thanks

    several small portages into the back lakes. Nothing longer than 1/3 mile at best. How far are you going in? You might want to take a practice run this summer so you can get to know the lakes.

    Just put in at the Delta River Wayside, which is where Upper Tangle Lakes ends and the Tangle river starts. Head south to the end, about 4 miles. From here there is a short, easy portage over to Land-locked Tangle lakes. Put in at the North end of the lake and head south.
    If you're late enough and hit it at the right time, the whole heard should be meandering around here. . .
