    Hey Yall.
    I was just curious as to what kind of class IV/V runs would be going in eastern Canada in mid-late august? I’m also sort of curious to find out what’s up there anyways.

    I dont know a ton about the area but it might be a crapshoot finding water. we did an expadition to the Gaspe this year and it was starting to get low by early June or so. Also, the stuff north of Quebec City has been pretty low so far this year and is close to tapped out already. Mabye some multiday shit near the Lac St. Jean region will be going but I dont know anything about that, mabye next summer. email me if you have any questions for a fellow american.

    Here in Newfoundland, everything’s low. This is typical summer water levels. Do an epic trip in Labrador, come here another time of year, or try somewhere else. Good luck finding water!

    Hey !

    Gasp̩sie is not the place for Class IV РV in the summer. Compared to other Qu̩bec regions, this one is pretty poor as far as white water.

    Lac St-Jean is one the places to be, for 1 day runs and multi day shit like you said. Misstassibi, Basse-Écorces, Basse Métabétchouane continuous, non stop action and lots more at all times(800 meters…2600′ mountains with tons of rivers = lots of fun !!!) ! I was there a few weeks ago and still amazed by the KM’s and km’s of non stop rapids, they should keep some for the others !!! INCREDIBLE REGION!!!

    A few white water clubs that could be of help http://www.clubaviron.ca/ccca.html in lac St-jean, http://www.portageurs.qc.ca/ in Montréal for the Laurentians. We’ll be running the Taureau (V’s for 23km) north of Québec city in august.

    And our local classics, Rouge near the Outaouais(Ottawa) region with it’s runnable falls at low water (august), the wild and wonderfull Gatineau near Maniwaki and while you’re here you can’t miss the famous Ottawa or Lachine rapids on the St-Laurent seaway in Montréal.

    Always lots to paddle at any time within 1,5 hrs drive from our national capital !

    Good Luck !

    Hi-larious. I don’t think many non-canadians will get it though.

    Everything you ever needed to know aboat Canada can be gleaned from Terrence and Phillip on South Park. Watch out for the newfies.

    Will you guys run the taureau in August regardless of how low the level gets? Just wondering what your low limit is. It will run with rain, but we did it at 40 or so on the Tewks gauge a while back and the top down to the Launiere was pretty painful and shallow.
