Took a look at some of the launch points along the Rideau this Saturday. The river is running incredibly high, to me it looks like it is within a few inches of the highest spring flood I’ve seen. Here is the launch at the Kars community centre:
The water was moving pretty fast so you could duck under the bridge and get out but you would have a hard time paddling back to the car upstream.
I know alot of people with homes along the rivers in the area are having a hard time. Here’s hoping the rainfall abates and the river levels return to something more normal.
