This is listed as one of Alaska's top whitewater trips in GORP. Read their description by clicking here. (Clicking will open a new browser window.) GORP's map incorrectly places the Copper way southeast in the panhandle (it should be southeast, but not that far down!), but nobody's perfect.
There were several USGS gages on the Copper, including Copper near Chitina. At present they're all inactive. This river needs gages!
Permits are not required for this reach.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
