Does anybody know what Spray Creek is like right now for Big Spring Lake to Mendelssohn Lake?
And are there any decent camp spots on Mendelssohn Lake?

If you mean the water level on Spray, it is fine.

It was a very nice lake to paddle. Spray Creek has 8 lift overs over beaver dams.

Went down Spray Creek to the Montreal one week ago. Eight beaver dams sounds about right plus the one 200 meter portage. There were also about 4-5 large log snags that had to be lifted around. I think that the spring flood let loose some stuff that hadn't been flushed down the creek in the recent dry years. The whole creek took us about 4.5 hours; a bit longer than usual.
