Palmer rapids really doesn't change too much unless level is 300 cms and greater
I think in the first drop a (surf??) wave forms ... and piano rock is covered. More channels at the top open up too. The section still remains at Class II/III.
At least it's not under a navigation ban.

And the lower mad section is good too except for the friggin long paddle to the rapids.

The Lower Mad is a beautiful, safe, class 2-3 river. The water is fairly deep, all the rapids are easily scouted and seperated by relativly calm water. Popular with beginner-intermediate river runners, it also has a great park-and-play spot at the first rapid at flows above 75 cms.

Any idea what Palmer rapid looks like at the current level?

I've only seen it around 60 I think.

Last night the Mad was at 150 cms.  According to Bill, that's considered high which makes the river less technical.  Some features will be washed out.

I am interested in running the river on Sunday if anyone wants to share a ride from Ottawa.
We could meet at Eagleson P&R if there are more than a couple of us.

Will meet you at the Put-in (at 10:15)

Jen & Allen

You will need to be at Paddle Coop office (6535 Palmer Road, Palmer Rapids, ON) by 8:45 Saturday morning to register. The course day is approximately 9-4 with a 1 hour lunch break. You'll  need to bring all of your paddling gear.

The contact at Paddle Coop is jack@paddlerco-op.com  I'll make the payment tomorrow and you can now deal direct with them.
