Guys,
I work in hydro plants and dams in Outaouais. Confirm that Outaouais will reach same levels as 2017. With peak on Easter Monday. 80mm of rain in coming 3 days and 150mm-300mm of water-equivalent about to melt all over the watershed.
So very high levels for 2 weeks, probably longer.
You're right Chris, reservoirs are currently as low as possible on all basins.

We'll just have to inspect every bridge. The Montréal group should be there too--safety in numbers!

Be safe out there. With the forecasted rain, water levels can rise quickly.

That's why we planned this for Friday instead of later in the weekend.

Paddling / Bonniebrooke Friday April 19

Hi folks,

After some research and discussion, a group of us are planning to run the Bonniebrooke.
It's a class 2+ - 3+ river with some larger drops that can easily be carried around.
It's located in the lower Laurentians and is about 1.75 hours from Ottawa.

Plans are to meet at the Tim Horton's at Autoroute 50 and Montee Paiement at 8:30am  GPS 45.504388, -75.676021
OR at the Tim Hortons in St Canut at 10:30 AM   GPS:  45.705077,-74.095771

Please use this thread to arrange rides and to let others know how many are interested in going.

Cool. Let's hope we have a long season.

Missing from my post was that I got the impression from the Regulation board blurbs that in order not to risk the kinds of floods of Spring 2017, the reservoirs were emptied more aggressively in the Fall than was done in the previous years. Thus not needing to release as much in the Spring. Thus a comparatively short surf season.

But I might be completely wrong. Last year, river rose above 59 m on April 29th and dipped back below that on May 24th--we are almost 2 weeks earlier this year. So who knows--maybe an extra long season in fact this year!

Enough typing, time to surf.
