I'm coming mid august to hunt Caribou and float the Charlie River back to Circle Alaska. Any info on type of conditions, river levels, hunting opportunies would be greatly appreciated. I am from Montana and hunting with a brother-in -law who has never hunted this area either. Thanks in Advance Bob

Charley River

Hello,

I'm sorry, but I can't be much help with this river. I suspect a good place to start would be the Yukon-Charley National Preserve headquarters in Eagle. They could potentially provide some help with current river levels and what to expect. Their website is here: http://www.nps.gov/yuch/

The only other thing I can recall is a couple years back I remember reading about a group of folks that were stranded up on the Charley. They got dropped in with open canoes and were unprepared for the conditions they met. I think the water was low and areas of pretty nasty rapids developed. I may not be recalling correctly, but at any rate I would recommend doing as much research ahead of time so you don't get surprised when you get in there.
