Paddlied the South Nahanni River in August .. which starts out fairly clear but then gets muddy from glacial till from the tribs (I think).

But even though I though the Nahanni was muddy.. it was nothing compared to the Liard once we got to the confluence below Nahanni Butte.

Talked with the owners of Lindbergs B&B and they said that come winter - the Liard is very clear... and then gets muddy again as Spring/Summer come.

Does anyone know why the Liard is so muddy?

Is it muddy all the way up to it's sources?

thanks.
