I am going to lead a trip in the Kipawa/Dumoine region of Quebec in late July and early August. I am hoping to explore the Fildegrand River (a tributary of the lower Dumoine). Does anyone have any information on this river?

We came down the Dumoine last year in late August. By that time the Fildegrand was just a small stream that was easy to go up until we came to a camp, perhaps 750-1000m upstream. At this point it was very shallow swifts as far upstream as we could see. I've heard that there is a substantial spring runoff and the river is a great whitewater ride at that time. When you are going I'd expect to see a small creek. We've got a few pictures, but none of them made it onto the website. Just downstream of there is a large cliff that is well worth the climb around the backside for the view - likely a better option unless you are planning on going after some brookies.
