Put in late Thursday night, at the lower camp on Bathurst lake. Crazy bugs there but the next 2 days no bugs. The third day we were fresh meat. Indian falls was crazy fun, we did not think much of it till we hit the two class 3 ledges and learned a little respect. It was low water so it was not to crazy but still quite the drop. I was really worked up about the Narrows a few people said not to run them, Ken said we could and he was right. I am sure they are a little more nutz at high water. But I did not see death in them. Ended up pulling out just before Pabineau Falls about 6:30 Sunday night. More pics and tags to come. Joel
I thought it was funny the HOT girl at Mt Carlton park asked if we had a guide Before she let is in the park. But after bluffing that we knew what we were doing she let us in anyways. he he
Looks like a great trip indeed. What size kayaks were you all using? I have a 16ft that is my favorite for overnight trips because of the cargo space, comfort, and speed. Everything looked runnable. The Middle River gauge was reading between .9 and 1.0, and the Northwest Miramichi gauge was reading .6 and .7 during the days you described. I wonder if either would be a useful indicator, I'd love to do this run sometime.
Our boats are all just under 13' but have both front and rear hatches. Water I would say was to low between Bathurst Lake and popple depot for canoes but after that you probably could make it. We still did some scraping in some place with our kayaks though.
