River Description


We are aware of runs of this small tributary of the Falls River in L'Anse. We cannot attest to how much of the creek was run, I.E., whether it is just a 'park-and-huck' of Dault's Creek Falls or if some longer stretch might be reasonably runnable.

Gradient starts 0.8 mile down from Herman Road in Herman, and averages near 140FPM for the next 3.5 miles, eases back to 50-ish for 1.5 miles before Dault's Falls, then hits about 124FPM for the final mile. However, the total drainage area at the head of the gradient is less than 5 square miles. On something this small, expect that it will take a lot (of rain or snowmelt or both) to make it run. Also expect that deadfall and snags will be a serious concern. (It is likely that anyone who does this once will not be eager to do it again.) We have listed a take-out on Hwy.41, but have no idea if a run to there is really feasible, nor whether adequate parking/access is available there.

In general, one might expect it to 'go' only when rivers around L'Anse are running large.
