You need to stop firing up my imagination. I have little time for the goals I have now without you suggesting trips I missed. That being said that would be a fun and long trip. Is it doable and when spring, summer and fall? The photos look as though it is doable in the summer but they can lie readily.

You saw photos? where? I've looked at the stream as I travelled over it on the highway bridge. The map shows rapids for the first few miles after the bridge. I think it gets gentler past the Narrows, might make a good fishing trip. It would also be interesting to pole up the stream from the upper bridge in lower water and carry over into the Kennedy Lakes to explore.
I've talked to Paul about this. If you want to do it Ken I can get you the coordinates for their take-out, which I figure would be just about the right place for a canoer to put in. There is some footage of the run from the bridge down to the Narrows on Youtube, but it's a compilation and the S Renous is like the last minute or so. I wouldn't put my canoe down through the upper parts. I'd kayak it though www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tzoedvofcA I'd love to do this run in salmon season, spend a couple of days fishing my way down to the forks then right down to Quarryville.

Found them... N46 45.054 W66 23.201 This is about 4 kms above the Narrows though. I've fished in through there, the road is good and there would be other places along the dirt road to put in down below.
Ken if you do that, let me know if you need company. I've wanted to see that stretch and fish it all. I have the pools all loaded on my gps, but I bet there are more pockets just waiting to be discovered!
Hmmm, glad I checked this post out. I'm a novice kayaker and I was planning on trying this one out in 2 weeks. My in-laws camp off the 108 and I thought about Munson's Landing to where the river meets the #8. I figured it'd a nice 3-4 hour trip. I doubt I'd encounter anything too difficult that far along the river?
