May 23, 2020 All Day
Jim MacLachlan will lead a day trip on the Lower Madawaska River from Aumond's Bay to Buck Bay on Saturday, May 23. The Aumond's Bay put-in is about 2.5 hours drive north of Kingston. This section of the Madawaska River is a very scenic stretch of whitewater with 8 distinct rapids. The club often paddles the Lower Madawaska on the July long weekend. With this trip being scheduled 5 weeks earlier, water levels are expected to be high but not too difficult (Class 1 - 3) - suitable for whitewater kayaks and canoes equipped with added flotation.
The water temperature will still be low so wet suits or dry suits are necessary. Regular whitewater safety equipment is required.
