There are some good really good rivers for that in that area. the issue is that the levels right now have dropped down to summer levels. so depending on your time line this area is kinda screwed for the time being.
Call White squall in Carling and ask them. they are crazy knowledgeable on the waterways in the area.
If you need any other help let me know as I’m from parry sound
I am looking for a place to teach intro to tandem WW tripping skills near parry sound. Are there any ideal teaching spots in the area? Thanks for your suggestions.
Dan, I did a trip down the Magnetawan last August at fairly low levels. There was an amazingly smooth little drop that you could conceivably paddle up to from Hwy 69, especially in tandems. I can’t remember exactly, but I am pretty certain it was about half-way down from Miner Lake to Byng Inlet. It was smooth and safe, with clean eddy lines and some nice surf waves. It was so regular we thought it was man-made at first. I thought I had some pictures of it, but I can’t find them.
If you are interested in the mag then the put is off 124 for one section that is a good one for a canoe run.
If you are looking for a beginner run then I would suggest the seguin river from orrvile to mcdougall rd.
good progression that will give you time to work on the basics and then as the skill and confidence increases you can have a blast.
so how do I get to this place on the mag?[/quote:2bx3e373]
The easiest way I can think of is to paddle up from hwy 69. I don’t think it would be more than an hour’s paddle upstream from the highway. Since my memory is a little vague I would [u:2bx3e373]strongly suggest[/u:2bx3e373] checking it out yourself first, in case it is further up than I remember or not suitable for your purposes.
