I was hoping to canoe the French river this spring (1st week of may) but I am not sure if it will have adequate water due to the low level of spring run off this year. I normally run the Madawaska but would like to do something different. Can anybody tell me if the French would be a good choice?
Someone else just asked this same question. Search posts for French River or check myccr.com But the French, regardless of the levels, IMO is comparable to Madawaska (presuming you’re talking the lower Mad)… The French likely contains more flatwater, and you end up battling the wind.. (paddling from east to west anyway)
