Yes, you can take out at Carmacks. Some take out at Little Salmon. This helps to shave a day.
You can arrange with local outfitters to pick you up [for price]. We have a Tombstone hike which ends on Sept 6. We would be returning from Dawson City on that date and would pass through Carmacks area around mid afternoon. If we have space in the van we will give you a lift for free. If you make it into Dawson you can get a lift from there but we would charge a little for gas.
Are you bringing your own canoe or renting one? If renting then outfitters pick up their own canoes. This service is factored into the cost of rental but they charge extra for a lift [cost depends on number of people they are picking up and from where - it's not cheap but at least service is there]
The only other thing at this point Rerun is canoeing skill. Although rated a Grade I river, the current requires that a certain skill level be present to handle the river. If you are an absolute beginner or a lakes paddler, I recommend that you look at a paddling course to build these skills.
I'll be there when you need it. Be glad to meet over coffee and help with ny questions.
