Thread: Tiekel River

  1. #1

    Default Tiekel River

    Topo's show that the Tiekel River flows from the Richardson Highway from Stuarts Creek over to the Copper River. Is it floatable? Has anyone tried it?

    60ft waterfall is about 5 miles upstream from the copper. The first survey team in 1930s in a wooden scow didn't make it. It gets fast and tight quick in there.

    Sincerely,

    Default Not really

    Embick rated it class VI- with several difficult portages, only for technical kayakers with endurance. He said it is lethal at all flows, except extreme low flows.
    Take care,
