I have ran it in a 16' cat. Lots of drift boats, mainly guides, overflow from the kenai. Yes you could do it, the run is pretty easy.
Yes there is a shuttle but the name eludes me.
most put in at the bridge, southeast side. You can float down and pull out at one of the private campgrounds, there is two I know of on the left, and one on the right side. I've done both on the south side have yet to do the north side.
One word of caution. The lower southside pull out can be fun. It was blowing to be heck with an incoming tide...the row out was pretty rough. Once we arrived you literally drag your rafts (in our case), up a huge mud bank via a set of cables using your vehicle. The wind really put a hurtin on us bad.
I'd call down to soldotna and try and find out the camp grounds name, sorry I dont have that off hand. They can give you the skinney on the shuttle service, pull outs etc. For giggles the last time we started at the lake and came down. With 4 of us, one teenage boy it was interesting to say the least. Nice float though if you can take it for what it is, a scenic float. There is no more anchoring at the people hole, which really is a joke. The guides fish the opposite side of the state rec area. Now the guides are backing down it within easy casting distance of the shore fishen folks. Almost makes things confrontational. Even where we were at you could feel the tension watching the guides back down the lower end of the run right up next to the shore. It is a pretty good run to fish though thats for certain. The float itself from bidge just down past the campground to the first private spot is pretty short. Put in and pull out fees (if you are not camping there) add up in a hurry.
HOpe it helps some...I'll try and think of the campgrounds for ya and post if I remember them by name. You might try a google search for them also, I bet they are listed.
