Travel the river in Mid May 2005. First day paddel from Mowat landing to Latchford. Found campsite at I go you go point. You can hear hy 11 from the camp site. Portage around this dam is very easy. Paddel to Hound Chute. Found this portage very hard. Not well marked and when you reach the river below the dam there were rapids that had to be run or make a trail down river. We made a new trail water was to cold. Paddle in water to Ragged Chute where again there was no portage to be found and rapids below the dam. We set up at camp site above the dam. Found a portage of one KM. Use hydro road walked south on it for 900 meters. Trail bears right down to river very steep.We were saved by two conservation officers who truck our gear to Fountain Falls. Thank you guys. Last day on the river. Very good paddle today. Lot of sandy shore here and lot of rock as well.Good trip. Thanks to Alex, Mike and Lloyd for a great time.}}
