Guage: Kedgwick River

1.1 Tom says, "1.1 m at Kedgwick River gauge is as low as I would go, only had to drag a few times,
1.6 Tom says, 1.6 is fast and fun with some really big waves in places."
1.28 m Carm says, "based on below Kedgwick station, 1.28 m is fine, only scratching taking place due to inattentiveness."
0.95 Dwight C. says, "We put in the Restigouche at Downs Gulch on July 22/2012 and motored down to Red Bank. A few bumps along the way but not too bad if youíre careful. Water level at the site below Kedgwick river was 0.95 and dropping. Got some rain on the 24th but level didnít rise until the 25th. Coming back up was okay, (didnít have to get out of the boat but had to pick youíre route wisely). Not the best level if you donít want any scrapes or bumps, but manageable."
.85 and .79 Rob says, "We ran from England Flats to Matapedia in kayaks (12/13'.) Most would say too low. Had to walk kayaks 2-3 times about 20' over a shoal, BUT the rapids were actually surprisingly fun. A few where with more water there is little fun. Chamberlain a great drop in low water. Mocklers disappointing. A nice rip a few KM above rafting grounds and another .5km below. If you're looking for fun, it's 'usually" river left and for Chamberlain dead centre is your big drop. Far left to miss it :(
2.3 Rob says, "WILD. Would think about doing it again at that level."

Guage: Rafting Grounds

.8 Darrell C says: "We put in at 15 mile on Kedgwick River. All paddling solo but still had to pick your lines, had to get out and walk maybe two or three times. Great fall trip."
