Its flows into the Ottawa, from the QC side up near Swisha (Rapides Des Joachims). Its between the Noire and Dumoine Rivers.
I know Adin posted a few months ago and didnt get alot of info.
Anyone else able to help? The river is in ZEC St Patrice, and drops pretty quickly to the Ottawa. I believe that last section is called Yankee Chutes?
Anyone run this – or any other section of the Schyan?
Try to get a hold of the Deep River club, I’m sure they would have some info for you. Brent Cooper (Petawawa) might also be able to help you out.
ps I believe its more of a spring run and you’ll need a half decent 4×4 if you intend to use the roads in that area otherwise you’ll be paddling across from Deep River and hiking up (put in around Balmer’s bay road)
-Steep Class 3+, few eddies
-the channel appeares to have been cleared of obstructions (thats why its class 3 despite the gradient)
-paddle across from Deep is easier than driving in.
-mostly big wave trains.
Anyone got anythign else to add?
Glenn – no topo needed really. I’d be keen to go suss it out some night soon.
Im in BC for a week but maybe in the latter half of August?
I’ve ran the Yankee Chute section in the spring, its wasn’t difficult at the time, three sections first has a rocky hole, second a slide and third simply run right to left. I don’t know about the rest of the Schyan runs,
