Nelson basin and Hayes basin

I have constructed three folders to hold Routes in the Nelson and Hayes basins.
Folder 5. Both Route and Information entries for Routes confined to the basin of the Nelson River.
Folder 6. Both Route and Information entries for Routes confined to the basin of the Hayes River (exception noted below),
Folder 7. Route entries only for Routes in both basins, for example Routes on The Middle Track. Exception: Hayes Routes starting from the upper Nelson are posted in Folder 6 only.

Folder 5. Nelson basin

Contents.
Routes exclusively on the Nelson River and its tributaries: Burntwood River and its tributaries, Grass River and its tributaries, Kettle River, Minago River, etc.
Route and Information entries for the Burntwood and Grass systems (Sections 1 and 2) are posted first, followed by those solely for the Nelson River (Section 3). Paddlers should check all three Sections.

.

Section 1. Burntwood system.

Contents.
