    I’ve listed a number of spots in Ottawa at: [url:2w0oy5sn]http://metroottawakayak.kayakblogs.com/index.php[/url:2w0oy5sn]

    Right now the Deschenes medium / high water spot is best. Champlain is starting to come up. The Back Bacon at Hogs Back may be good as well… depending on what this rain has done.

    Deshenes will be alot of fun today. The level is on the high side for good eddy service if you flip, but the wave will be great. Its rising fast though.

    TIP: If you miss the main eddy on river left, catch the next one or two down and just lift over. You’ll see what I mean. You can also hand a rope from the tree above on river left .
