I was looking at my map, and I got to wondering...could someone paddle to the Minto Flats from the junction of the Elliott and Dalton Highways? I haven't been there yet, but it looks like you could park a vehicle at one of a few spots and put in to one of the 3-4 creeks draining the watershed that eventually makes its way to the Tolovana River. Looks like there's endless possibilities for good pike fishing.
I know I've heard stories of guys' vehicles getting roughed up or broken into when they park in or near a Native village around that area. Would that be the town Minto that they are talking about? You would think you could park in Minto and put in for a few days of paddling and fishing, but I'm trying to not get my truck messed up. Any thoughts or comments??
