Paddle Point

Watch out for fishermen. They don't fish this river on a Sunday.

This is a quiet stretch down to Clady River with only two weirs to deal with. Both can be portaged easily.

Easily portaged, river left.

Exercise caution on this weir, it has already had one fatality on it that was kayak related.

A good starting point for this river for experienced paddlers.
Parking is limited in a small lay-by, so be sensitive to local needs for access etc.

Usually shot on river left.

This weir can be tricky at lower levels as there are a few boulders washed out of place. Definitely worth checking out from the bank first.

This weir has a potential trap on river left as there is a protruding brick wall with a recirculating pool.

Not the easiest get-out point as the river can flow quite fast at the steps side of the river. However there is a good eddy on the opposite side and you can then ferry glide over to the steps.

A gentle slope that should cause no concern in most conditions.

This weir has a double drop and can be portaged easily in low water by going to the river right side and walking down the face. Beware of debris caught on it in higher water levels.

There are canoe steps above and below this weir as it can not be shot in either a kayak or canoe.
