Some friends and I are thinking of paddling from Beresford Lake along the Garner River maybe as far as Mather Lake in August. What is this trip like in a dry year like this and is it appropriate to bring a lake canoe, or do we need a river canoe?

You’ll be doing lots of portaging so bring something light. That area of Woodland Caribou Park is closed right now due to fires burning in the southern half of the park. When it does reopen its worth checking in with park staff regarding the portage routes before buying your permits.

I did a smaller trip in 2017 from Beresford to Garner lake.

In high water you'll probably encounter motor boat traffic; but this year with low water levels you'll most likely encounter beaver dams and I don't think you'll encounter any boats.

Thanks for your suggestions. Does the Garner river in that area have much of a current?

When I went, the levels were low and there was no noticeable current. Going upstream or down did not make much difference.
