i waded and lined at that exact same spot last year. There just wasn't enough water where there wasn't current and it was too bony to navigate by paddle without getting pushed back out into the current and "going for a ride" backwards.


DentonDoc and I did the same just a day or so before you.  I have the scratches on my cedar strip canoe to prove it! We searched for the alternate bypass portage but it was apparently grown over. About 10 years ago I was pushed out and nearly flipped my kayak when I tried to paddle the edge. Water started pouring into the cockpit but I managed to recover before floating upside down out into the lake.

Whether you can  paddle up that spot depends on how high the water is in BH.  If the water in BH is high enough you won't even know there is a rapids there.  But if the water is low in BH, then getting up that rapids can be very difficult.

This has to be the riffle leading to the portage into Quetico Lk. The ladies are taking the smart route by staying to the right of the spill-out.

I've never had to wade, I just stayed as far right as possible and lined the canoe up past the spill-out.

I tried paddling up the riffle a few times but only got half-way up, hung for a moment then pushed right back out. That riffle doesn't look like much but more than a few paddlers have dumped there.

Once you get into the little pond and see the force of the water coming out of Quetico Lk, you understand how much force is coming out of that little riffle.  Shocked Grin
