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!

You might be able to get Edition 1 if you contact these retailers:

Here is a very brief description of your run:

North Saskatchewan River
Ramparts Creek Campground to Preacher’s Point (Abraham Lake)
Duration of Tour – 52 km – 2 days
Classification
1. Rapids: one Class V to VI, with a good portage trail and then another good portage trail around the next rapid, a Class III+ and then some Class II water above Whirlpool Point.
2. Skill of Paddlers: Intermediate River

Beg, Borrow or Buy the book.
