With the low water levels, is it feasible for a couple of strong paddlers to climb upstream on the Sturgeon between Kettle and Ghoul, so that we can then make our way through Solace? This stretch is about 12 KM, but I'm thinking 2 days might be required to complete it. Would appreciate your thoughts.

Nice trip. I would say no problem "for a couple of strong paddlers to climb upstream on the Sturgeon between Kettle and Ghoul"

Thanks, alscool - sounds like this is the one for me. Delayed 'till June, though, due to pneumonia...

Any opinions as to whether it's better (easier) to travel West to East (moving upstream on the Sturgeon through swifts, etc.) or moving East to West (climbing Misibi)?
