|Almost certainly too low. We need your input to define/refine difficulty and flow ranges. Add a comment or report! Gauge (drainage 11.9 sq.mi.) lies 5.6 miles upstream of Mandan Road (listed alternate access). **UNFUNDED 2016.10.30**|
The upper portion of this run (12 miles) is perhaps better suited for canoe tripping. (It may be possible to skip much of this if additional roads in the area are passable.) Upper Falls and Lower Falls are in last mile to lake. You then have a four mile paddle out on Lake Superior to return to the nearest road access.

If access is not possible at the listed put-in (if road is impassible in spring), accsss may be necessary from this point. This would add 13.3 miles of low gradient paddling.
