Good day Folks,

I'm looking for info paddling the Big Salmon from Quiet Lake to the confluence with the Yukon river, upstream from Carmacks. Thanks.

Later Laura

Laura, Mike Rourke has a nice km by km guide available at Mac's Fireweed Books. Also Pete Mather and Ken Madsen had it in their Paddling the Yukon. I paddled it in 2013, if you have any questions.

What do you want to know? It is a nice trip getting pretty crowded in later August and through September.(Moose hunting season for us Yukoners and Condor flights for the Germans.) Quite Lake is often not quiet, so stick close to the shore. There are usually 2 log jams to navigate, most of years the first one requires a short portage. I am on the Big Salmon for hunting pretty much every year, so if you need some specific information I am sure I can help you. Cheers Gunnar
