Hello, this is Matt from Atlanta - I am part of a group of 4-5 beginner-intemediate whitewater open boaters that really enjoy canoe camping. There are no ww rivers in the U.S southeast to trip for more than a night or two, so I have been looking north, to Maine and Quebec, for a week-long September trip to do on a nice river w/o a lot of traffic. The only rivers in Maine that I have found are the Alligash and the St. Croix, but the Alligash seems overdone, and the St. Croix seems pretty flat. I started reading up on the Quebec rivers, and they sounded magnificent! Am planning on doing the Bonaventure next spring/summer, but cannot find a suitable river for the fall...
can anyone suggest a trip that matches these specs? Thanx - Matt

You may want to call 1-877-BON-JOUR Which is Quebec's tourism info line. Ask for their guide Of Wildlife reserves and get the phone Number for the Federation Quebecoise Du Canot et Du Kayak. You'l find a lot of routes that match your needs in La Verendrye (348 km from Montreal) There are also alot of spectacular remote runs going up to James Bay.

Go for the Dumoine. It is a fun river, with limited traffic, especially if you miss the weekend start or finish.

What level of ww are you comfortable in? How much flatwater and/or portaging and will you have multiple vehicles available for shuttle.

You mention a one week trip, how many days can you have on the water/travel?

There are many many routes in Quebec that would be suitable. In September there will be very few other paddlers.
