River Description

Small stream that takes a more leisurely descent than the others in this area. Best gradient is concentrated in the three miles below the Major Road ford. Though this stream is not rated particularly high, swift current, limited eddies, and periodic trees blocking passage deserve caution. Alternate take-out at the end of Sicotte Road eliminates 2.8 miles of lower gradient paddling though the land here is privately held.

Summary of Gauge Readings

Visual at Skanee Rd bridge. If the gravel shoals upstream have enough water to float over, it should be a go.

Directions Description

It does make a longer shuttle, but it may be possible to access a 'short run' take-out at lat/lng: 46.8406, -88.2085

(Enter (copy/paste) those coordinates into the text-entry box below.)

Early season may find some of these back roads impassible, so the 'short run' take-out may not be accessible or an alternate route may be necessary.
