We are thinking of doing these rivers late this week into next week. Does anyone have an idea on water levels. I can see online what the cms flow is but have no idea how that relates to paddling. We don't want to end up grinding down long sections or having to portage everything.
Thanks in advance for your help.

See gauges and descriptions of levels at http://boatwerks.com/waterlevels/

The Lower Mad is currently at a very good level. The Pet also seems high for this time of year, but I'm less familiar with its gauge.

Those rivers are runnable down to the teens, albeit rocky. Check OPG for projections for lower Mad, Check rain forecast for Pet projection,

The Petawawa is looking good for this time of year. You won't have any issues at the current level. Last time I was there about this time of year we had levels in the low to mid 30's and it was fine. I've run it down into the teens and it becomes pretty boney
