September is a great time as you will likely see few, if any, other travellers. Kettle Falls down to Upper Goose Falls has a big variety of scenery. The river goes from close jack pine-covered hills at Kettle down to wide river channels near Upper Goose. I have seen lots of wildlife along the entire section.

Hows the fishing and how much of an experience paddler you have to be? I wanted to go with my girlfriend. We have done canoe camping once in Algonquin for a weekend. However I am much more experienced.

Gregas,

I actually have had very good luck pike fishing on the Sturgeon, although I haven't done that much close to Kettle Falls. I'm not sure what else there is in the river (aside from, well, sturgeon, but good luck catching one of those) as pike always seem to be the first thing to hit on my lures.

Pike will hang out just about anywhere, but most of my luck has come in and around reed beds close to moving water, rapids or falls.
