Sleighr said it all. Be prepared! I have done 2 Feb trips. The second trip I was shorts and PFD the last 3-4 days but we had snow, sleet, freezing rain also. Bring a dry suit.

Snowy Launch 1/1/2016. Found this image on Ceib's facebook page.

All that gear had to be strapped down with cams straps that require bare hands for operation.

Bring AK commercial fishing gear. Insulated ditch boots (too bad ExtraTuffs suck now), those big dish washing gloves w fuzzy fleece on inside (best cold & wet weather rowing gloves), and Grunden's style rain gear w bibs. Dry suit for big rapid days, rain gear for flat water and camp. If you bring all that crap, it won't end up raining at all & all your friends will hate you for killing The Nino...
