Post subject:  Tsichu River, Mackenzie Mountains

I am planning to paddle the Tsichu from mile 222 of the Canol Trail in order to reach the Keele and paddle to the Mackenzie River. I know this river has been paddled by a few groups but I have been unable to find any trip reports. If anyone reading this happens to have or know anyone who might have paddled this river and have some notes, I would really appreciate it!

Thanks so much!

Hey Dwayne -

Here's a short report and Al Pace's contact info:

I know a Camp Wanapitei group did travel on the Tsichu in the summer of 2012, I had contact info for one of the leaders, I'll try to dig it up later tonight.

I want do do the same.
The link avove doesn't work any more.
Has anybody got any information?
How can we get to mile 222? Are there people willing to drive us up there in Ross River?
We want to go by folding canoe (ally adventure).
Ole

We paddled the Tsichu / Keele in 2014. It was a great trip and I'd be happy to share my trip report and map notes with anyone planning to do the river. The Tsichu is a small, bouldery, and challenging river but it's only 40km long and afterwards you're onto the relatively easy Keele River all the way to the Mackenzie. There is one long portage at the end of the Tsichu where it meets the Keele, but otherwise we only did one short portage and lined a few times. It did take a while with all the scouting though and whitewater novices we had on the trip.

Toban Leckie was one of the guides for Camp Wanapitei who took the Tischu into the Keele. His email is toban.leckie@gmail.com - He gave me quite a bit of information about the trip. Al Pace as well from Canoe North Adventures....his advise was only to do it if you have a flexible schedule or a feasible backup plan, as the Canol Road often washes out and can remain unrepaired for months.

Mile 222 on the North Canol can be accessed by air. There is currently no aircraft on wheels in Whitehorse that can carry hard-shell canoes internally, but hardshell kayaks and folding/inflatable boats can be carried internally in a Cessna grand caravan on wheels and flown out of Whitehorse or Mayo, Yukon.

Email quotes@alkanair.com or floatplanes@alkanair.com for more information.
