Don't mess around on the Copper!
Posted by Brian Richardson on Jun 10 2003
The Copper River as well as many of its source tributaries packs a lot of very cold CFS (Cubic feet of H2O per second!  The main Copper is not a complex river in terms of technical know how - however character-wise the flow of current and massive volume is very authoritative and often be accompanied by blowing windy conditions even high winds with sandstorms.

The only boats to be used on the Copper are good through highest standards of quality and structural worthiness (floatation).  Even a slight mishap could front exponential consequences.

No matter what anyone tells you the porta-boat (if it is that little fold-about) is not recommended or even an option.  Don�t mess with high volume frigid rivers in Alaska with a craft like that� especially if you plan to jeopardize the well-being of others that are not in the know.
