  • Lost on Portage Creek

    I am posting for a friend that I just learned had a mishap while floating on Portage Creek this weekend. They had put in near the Begich-Boggs Visitor Center and just before the split on the creek, one of the vessels hit a rock and dumped the passengers and gear. They safely made to shore thanks to their life vests, but they lost all gear and the boat.

    I am hoping someone might have picked up some of it as it floated by or as it entered the Arm.

    Boat - silver canoe (apprx 15 ft.)
    3 green Cabela brand totes (1-ammo tote) (2- larger)
    Smith and Wesson 480 stainless revolver
    3 paddles (1-black/yellow 2-grey)
    Inside the totes was camping gear (tents, food/cooking gear, bedding)
    Folding camp chairs

    I know it is a long shot, but you never know. Thanks,

    If any is located, please shoot me a message back and I'll get you in touch with her.
