East side of James island is closed

In the early spring on the Rideau river you have the choice of following the main channel west of James island or the shallow channel to the east. Unfortunately the weeds grow very fast on the east side and when I looked tonight it would have been difficult to get through.

There were always lots of fish to see along with an eagle’s nest along this side of the island so it is too bad it is impassable but it also reduces the damage from powerboats that you see in other areas of the river.
