Post subject:  Water levels in the Pickerel River

I know some people that will be paddling in French River Provincial Park to do research (under permit) on the impact and recovery of last year's wildfire in the park. They were wondering what water levels in the Pickerel between the Elephants to Bowens Bay will be in late August as they have some sensitive scientific equipment that they need to bring in. Any advice would be great.

The water levels on the French, which supplies the flow to that part of the Pickerel, is partially(mostly?) determined by the outflow of the dams on L Nip. That outflow seems to be largely determined by the desire to change the level of L Nip. Rainfall in the watershed below Nip would, of course, be the major determinant. The flows at the end of June, as witnessed by True North, were much greater than those we saw at the end of July.

I would suggest that they look at the flows shown on the WaterOffice site for the past couple of weeks as well as the rainfall records on the WeatherOffice site. That would be much better, IMO, than any 'historical record'(anecdotal evidence) reported by fellow paddlers.

Thanks Wotrock, I will pass on your suggestion.

Just got home from a couple of days on the Upper French. The water levels were very low. Little Pine and Big Pine rapids were unrunnable.
