River Rider,

I don't recall seeing any established portages. However, I had waders and only walked the shore once. I waded or lined the canoe on almost all rapids. My friend did not have waders and walked along the shore when I waded/lined. We had to do this a lot with the low water. You can walk the shores if you have to but with canoe it might be a bit more challenging.

I am not sure how high the water is now but if you have hip waders you won't even need to portage just wade through rapids.

I like your plan of riding up from HW 2 and returning with current. You can make it up river quite a bit especially if you have hip waders! From HW2 and up it is mostly meadering sandy grassy shores but there are maybe 2 sections of rapids within 1 hour from HW2. I plan to do something similar on the Torch River from HW 106 and up river and then back down solo.

Be prepared to get at least a few dings on your canoe. Some of those rocks are hard to see.

BTW, I am a fan of your youtube channel and hope to see a video on the beautiful Waskesiu River.
