Special Comments: 

The paddling can be very flat at times, with runs of Class I and II rapids. A few Class IIIs, depending on water flow.

The lower Churchill River has 3 primary channels, I suggest stayin in the center if possible.

It is possible to paddle all the way to Churchill, but be mindfull of the wier. I suggest portaging over it. Also watch the tides, try to paddle this section as the tide starts to go out.
