The south fork along the WAMCATs trail, not too worried about the west fork.
My wife really, really (REALLY) wants to see part of the original telegraph line, so why not?
Caribou is open, but I doubt will get 40+ miles up in a freighter canoe with a three day weekend.
So I am driving a 17' Grumman squareback with a 7.5 Mercury. Runs good. Good for about 6mph at economy cruising speed, top end about 11 mph wound all the way out, both numbers per GPS. We'll pack a couple cameras for the old telegraph line, and I'll be ready for a caribou I don't expect to see.
I think the best single page of data is on the waterdata server at USGS:
Gage height is just over 16 feet and it is flowing just over 1000 cfs.
But what does that gage height and flow rate mean on this river? Do I need a jet boat with at least 600 horsepower to make any headway, or is it so low I would be better off leaving the canoe at home and just walking in the riverbed?
