I am planning a trip down the Grease River, was wondering if anyone has any experience/advise they'd be willing to share.

In 1995 six of us flew into the Grease River from Stony Rapids, landed a few km from the NWT Border, spent 7 days working our way down the river to Lake Athabasca and then 2 days paddling back to Stony.
The Grease is a remote, challenging but very rewarding trip. Not for the faint of heart but manageable with skill and common sense. There are many falls, the most noteable being Lefty's, many rapids, the most notable being the several km one near the end of the trip described by our pilot as " the canyon you don't try to paddle! There are no portages other than some game trails.
The Grease was not used by First Nations People or others due to its difficult nature and to date there is no industrial development along it ( other than mining claim cut lines ).
I was a novice whitewater paddler on this trip in the company of several veteran trippers, didn't take notes but have my pictures and memories of a great trip. PM me if you want to talk.
