Can anyone comment on this section of river. Will be paddling this section Aug 1 2014 on route to The Pas Manitoba.

Looking for 1) difficulty of whitewater and 2) water levels in August.

Thanks.

I've never paddled it but I've heard there's at least one falls.

I have not paddled this reach but perhaps someone who has can help out. If not...
The new edition of Mark’s book, Mark's Guide for Alberta Paddlers, will not be available until Summer 2014, however, there are still copies of the older version of this book available at some stores.
You need it!
