These are easy trips.

Trip 1 : When the water is reasonably high you can make the first section (From #1 to #2) in less than 2 hours. 

Trip 2 : This stretch passes through simliar farmland. There are several landing spots. Be careful not to get too close to the Souris Dam. Very dangerous in high water.


Historical Notes


About midway we pass the Ghost Village of Mentieth, once situated along these banks.
