Ed note: The Rupert will be dammed and perhaps no reach of it will be worth paddling. Should the maps be useless to paddlers, they record nevertheless what once was. Providing a route description seems a waste of time but here are the access/egress points that I picked off the maps.
Lac Mesgouez at km 221 of the Route du Nord.
Rivière Rupert crossing at km 241 of the Route du Nord.
Nemiscau settlement (via the Rivière Nemiscau to Lac Nemiscau and the Rivière Rupert).
Rivière Rupert (Oatmeal Rapids) crossing at km 257 of the Route de la Baie James.
Waskaganish.
