Getting slower at reporting these things, but, on the May long weekend last year (2017) I ran the Little Tobique from a put-in just outside Mt. Carlton Provincial Park to the Riley Brook General Store. We put-in outside the park to avoid an access fee and used a shuttle arranged for us by Tracy at the store.
For us, the Little Tobique was as advertised, full of log jams and sweepers but still a little magical. I compiled a map from the GPS data provided in another thread on this site which is available for download at the url below. All-in-all the Little Tobique is a nice little river. Although it closely parallels logging roads for a significant portion of the river's length. The trout fishing was also quite good, although the fish were small.
At the start of the trip the closest gauge in Riley Brook read 2.32 -- which was more than enough water.
