This lesser known, remote canoe trip is mostly flatwater, and offers excellent opportunities for small mouth bass fishing, moose watching and viewing beaver, otter, eagles, and waterfowl. It makes for a great one to four day soft adventure with several put-in and take-out options. The trip is dependent upon water levels, typically it can be paddled from early May to early June, and in the fall when the water level is sufficient.
For the first few miles the river is broad, winding through maple swamps with a good current. The river parallels roads for some of its length, but these low-trafficked roads only occasionally seen, and the river retains a wild feel. This water is canoeable most of the year except during periods of extremely low water.
The river offers good to excellent fishing for smallmouth bass along the entire trip, and early spring may produce fair fishing for brook trout.
Cost & Duration
Every trip is unique, just like our clients. Trips are available on a seasonal basis and as water levels allow for canoeing. The typical season starts around mid-May and runs through the end of July. For most fully outfitted trips, the average cost is $200/day per traveler (16 and over) with kids under 16 traveling free when accompanied with a paying adult.
