This trip report is a couple of months late, but recent enough to claim it as a spring paddle. The northwest branch of the digdeguash also sources from marshlands as does the main Digdeguash, but it's about half the size. 90% of the stream is flat easy going water until you reach the last couple of kms. It slowly starts getting a faster flow as it drops to the ground level of the main river. One section becomes very tight and very busy. Easily a kayak only section, unless you're paddling an esquif detonator! The rapids continue under the 127 highway and into the main dig just before the Tryon covered bridge. The put in requires a bit of bushwacking with a 4wd, but nothing too major... just don't be concerned about scratches because they will happen. Also you could try up to the adjacent 755 highway near st stephen for a put in... this would give you a calm paddle of flat water, and could take out at the put in just before the rapids.
