  • Campbell Creek Report 7/9/17

    I couldn't get far from Anchorage today but wanted to paddle something. Campbell Creek had come up due to the previous day's rain so it provided the perfect solution. The gauge showed about 18.5 which turned out to be just enough. I put in at Lake Otis and took out at Taku Lake 1:10 later. Too quick.

    On previous, lower water trips, I'd had to get out and drag. 18.5 provided a few rocks and submerged logs to bump into, but I never needed to get out. I bypassed the Peanut Farm in hopes of a burger at Arctic Roadrunner but forgot they are closed on Sundays. . It only took me 1:10. The current is a bit pushy at this level and it trys to push you into a few sweepers and strainers so be careful. The takeout is fairly obvious a few turns after passing under the RR tracks but is worth a scout of it's your first time.
