Message from Tom McCloud.

There is a group on the Hood river right now,which includes Curt Gellerman, whom you may remember from the WCS.
They report no water in the Hood this summer. The trip is described as a canoe-assisted hike.
I was wondering whether you know if anyone in a similar situation has portaged the 6 miles from some miles upriver of Wilberforce Falls eastward to the closest bend of the Hanbury, or the closest neck of Bathurst inlet?
Feel free to pass this question to anyone you believe might have good information.

My guess is the headwaters (lakes) are low but the Hood River proper is most likely has okay water levels for floating a canoe.

Seems that the party will get to salt water without portaging to the Inlet.
