Has anyone paddled the Rivière Brock or Brock Nord, tributaries of the Chibougamau? I'm looking at these streams for an August trip and would much appreciate hearing from someone who has been there.

With thanks,

I Haven't paddled and actually never heard of this one. Looks quite interesting with easy logistics (for the main branch at least). I checked all my usual sources and found nothing.

If you end up getting any info (other than posted here) or actually paddle this river please post back anything you find out.

Edit: I did find one fact, the river was named by E.D. Kindle who was a geologist working for the Geological Survey Of Canada, he published a number of books detailing his survey work in different parts of Canada (Listed at Amazon but not available). No doubt buried in the archives of the GSC are detailed descriptions of his travels along the lines of A.P. Low another GSC geologist who surveyed paddled many parts of Quebec (including the Upper Broadback area).
