Hard to believe we could have such a nice weekend in March. Hugh Croll, Dave Melanson, Kyle Hartley, Mike Christie and myself paddled the Magaguadavic River this weekend from Flume Falls to Second Falls.
We camped across from McDougall inlet Saturday night. It wasn't a bad spot located on a woods road. The level was at a really good height. Not too many rapids on the first day but Long rips and Mcdougall falls had some nice waves. Most rocks were under water through the rapids, including Mike and Hugh through McDougall falls.
After some humming and hawing over McDougall Falls, Kyle decided he would be the first to try. A tight line between 2 large rocks was our chosen path on river right. We opted not to go down the center because of the large holes. Kyle, Dave and myself each had successful runs through the falls.
Mike and Hugh had already portaged their canoe and gear but after watching us they decided to also give it a go, except they chose the center. I took the video from a rock half way down while Kyle and Dave readied themselves on opposite sides of the river. I'll let the video tell the rest of the story.
