    I was wondering if you know if the stretch below Eagle Lake is worth paddling at this level. There doesnt seem to be a lot of info on this section of the river but I have been told it is runnable.

    it is runnable, but i am not sure the level right now. it is a short section, easy and fun, but as of the last time i ran it there are some strainers along a section of it. is anyone looking to paddle at the gull thursday night?

    Chris I was told that the Eagle Lake dam is also releasing.

    I have also heard that section is Class 2 with one section sneaking onto Class 3, that it is nearly continuous and can be lots of fun a certain levels.

    Not sure if this is that level but it’ll be runnable.

    perhaps a mapquest link or what town is it near?

    Map quest the town of Eagle lake to find the river. It is a fun little section when the water is high. You will require a shuttle. The III really does sneak up, it’s just around a corner.

    The Gull is a great paddling venue.

    As president of Whitewater Ontario I invite paddlers to become members of Whitewater Ontario either as independent members or members of affiliated clubs. Then go ahead, enjoy the camping experience at the preserve. In inviting you please remember some basic things:

    1. This is a volunteer driven organization: volunteer your own time to see and reap the benefits of your efforts.

    2. Treat the preserve as a zero foot print area and take personal ownership: if you see someone or something adversely affecting the preserve – take action, educate, inform, persuade, report. send us pictures and tell of your experiences.

    3. Pack out your trash, clean up after yourself, make it better than you found it.

    4. encourage others to do the same.

    We at Whitewater Ontario wish to use the Minden Wildwater Preserve as a model of sustainable ecotourism and an example of people coming together, enjoying the out of doors in promotion of the sport of whitewater recreation.

    right before the class three, there is a really steep bank on river right that goes up to the road. after that the river curves to the right and it gets really fun. if you can get out and scout it, it would probably be best because there may be some downed trees in there
