According to "Whitewater Classics" (page 214) in 1985, when Lesser and Holbek returned to completed their partial descent of 1981, the raft first descent was also made (or maybe just attempted - the book say almost nothing about it). The book then notes that a second rafting attempt was made several years later ending with a hike out due to rising water levels.

Someone must have more to say about that first descent, but I haven't found anything on the net.

I guess I could ask Lars next time I see him. I am sure someone here knows Rob and Beth as well.

You can also find some historic Stikine footage at the same link.

Saw that vid a couple of years after I started boating. Nuts went up in my throat then; nuts still go up in the throat watching it now. Always impressed by Banducci's hand roll. And Wasson's Hole - wow - very wow.
