    Default Tanana river

    Just like to know how it looks between delta jct and salcha. Primary area we are curious about where the little delta river comes into the tanana. Is it froze over or still flowing pretty good? Thanks just want to know so we can go ice fishing . Not really bronco and I are planning something crazy...

    Bring your plane if you want a moose. I sure wouldn't walk/drive/mush across the river. Same day airborne rule isn't a big deal... -10 is pretty cozy camping weather.

    For those of you that hav'nt had the dip in the Tanana, It can be fine one day, ( the day you cross ) the next day it will have a couple of open water feeds going through where you came across. Be careful out there.

    I jump in the Tanana once a year weather I need it or not. Does anyone know if the ice on the Tanana is crossable up near Lake George East of Delta? I might have cause to head up that way and do some ice fishing.

    Bring a thousand feet of rope and tie it to the sled and snowmachine by the time you zip across the river you can stop and ease into gettin the sled going and haul ass again to get the sled and moose across! But then your in trouble for wonton waste if it goes in.

    They have a saying for this in high school and usually the individual oh yeah "peer pressure" and the outcome for the said individual doing whatever they were peer pressured into it usually didn't have a good outcome. So with that how about you guys show me how its done on your sleds if it works out I'm right behind you. If it don't work out you can count on your incident being on you-tube

    I'm bringing the brats and soda. I just love it when a bunch of guys get together to "show how" its done. Won't take long to forget why you went in the first place.
