          I could not find a place to launch my boat today at Chitina. I wanted to test drive it in the river but currently the main channel is out of reach of my 4x4. Upriver of the bridge, after winding my way out around soft spots below the Kotsina gravel deposits and small channels, there was a final stretch of 40 yards of deep wet sand with clay. Too soft for my truck. Below the bridge on the Chitina side by the Chitina Village "Iron Ranger" launch fee and parking fee station, there is a channel which would have to be crossed twice, the first one was knee deep, the second one only 8 inches. Only 40 degrees air temperature today, so the water is still low. On the downstream McCarthy side of the bridge, about 400 hundred yards down, people with a lighter inflatable MAY be able to launch, but the bank dropped off steeply.

          Who knows what it will look like in 2 weeks? Maybe if the Chitina Village Corporation plans on doing some gravel work and the river doesn't rise too much, dip netters can make it out there to launch their boats.

          O'Brian Creek does not have a public launch site.

            Good news. I heard someone made it with their truck to launch in the Copper above the bridge.
