Update: Nov. 28, 2002
The upper portion of North Fork Blakely Creek (above section described) is no longer open to the public. Permission must be obtained from land owners in advance of any access. All of the land in the upper portion of this reach is posted and the Shut-In Road access has been gated.
The lower half of this reach remains open to the public.

Generally it takes 1.5 to 2.0 inches of rain to raise the creek enough for boating. Except in cases of heavy rains over an extended period, this creek is runnable for only approximately 24 hours after the rain has stopped.
Permits are not required for this reach.
