Dease River. Features.
Dease Lake (several access points from Hwy 37), Beady Creek confluence, outlet from Hunters Lake, creek confluences (Packer Tom, Canyon), Portage Lake, creek confluences (Goathorn, Anvil), Anvil Lake and Pyramid Creek confluence, Hwy 37 bridge, Sphinx Creek confluence, Joe Irwin Lake, Pinetree Lake, Cotton Lake, Cottonwood River confluence, Pooley Creek confluence, Eagle River confluence, creek confluences (Huntergroup, Dalton, McDame), McDame settlement, Four Mile River confluence, outlet from Atan Lake, river confluences (Rapid, French, Blue), creek confluences (Masidoor, Lutz?, Sambo), Liard River junction, Lower Post and Alaska Highway (east of Watson Lake).
Note from erich (CCR post) on how to access Lower Post: "Lower Post is not upstream from where the Dease enters the Liard, but a little downstream and across the river. You have to track up a side channel behind an island for about 100 meters so that your front ferry gets you to Lower Post rather than below it."

Ed note: In a CCR post, erich provides the following information regarding the Mayfield access: "Mayfield Lake is south of the Gataga, and is called something else on maps. I'll have to look at my notes to see what the official name is. There is an outfitter's camp at the east end, and a trail down to the Gataga from the north side." In a PM, he provides the following: "... In an old guidebook I found a reference to the fly-in at an unnamed lake on sheet 94K, reference 125 25'W 58 3'N ... The lake or lakes are located about a third of the way down the Gataga as it's marked on some maps."

Hi Allan, a couple of small changes might be in order. Under the Dease River, Lower Post is not upstream from where the Dease enters the Liard, but a little downstream and across the river. You have to track up a side channel behind an island for about 100 meters so that your front ferry gets you to Lower Post rather than below it. Mayfield Lake is south of the Gataga, and is called something else on maps. I'll have to look at my notes to see what the official name is. There is an outfitter's camp at the east end, and a trail down to the Gataga from the north side.

Best,

Erich

Thanks erich!

Dease River entries: Correction has been made.

Gataga entries: I don't know how to handle them. I've been using Toporama for place names (for convenience) but I know that it is incomplete and occasionally inaccurate.
I looked at mytopo.com without success.

General comment:
Thanks to CCR's members for corrections, always welcome, to these entries. Bring 'em on!
