Wondering if anyone has any info on the Rivere Du Vieux Comptoir? English translation: Old Factory River, off the James Bay Road.

There's a brief account and video of youth from Wemindji descding it from Lac Du Vieux Comptoir in 2017.

These smaller rivers have intrigued me.
The Piagochioui river looks the most promising. I've been eyeing early and late season aerials too, to try and get a sense of flow regimes. Can't seem to find any info, so I'll be reaching out to the communities and camp groups. Either way, I think one of these will happen this summer.
Pulled the plug on the Pontax last year with some of the crazy high flows when we were supposed to go.
