"Lower" Redwater continues on from the Helmer Rd farm bridge (upper section take-out) until it meets the St. Onge Hwy, Hwy 34. It is pretty similar to the first section with the exception of a couple longer wave trains and one 6 ft dam. The dam is runnable but if you aren't confident in your boof, portaging might not be a bad idea. Note: This is not the notorious diversion dam that has taken several lives, that is on the other side of Belle.
Once at the end of the run, take out on the south side of Hwy 34 bridge, I've heard the campground owner on the other side of the bridge is not fond of "trespassers".
