Has anyone been down the Deux Rivers recently? Any opinions on how difficult that route will be this Sept? I've only taken that river in the spring, but looking to go back Sept 22. Everything seems to indicate water levels have been coming down, but still above normal for this time of year. Thanks in advance for any info given.

We are looking to be there on the same day (22nd, tentatively) so I would love the answer... Where are you going on your trip? We are putting in the 16th at Nym and out the 24th, Stanton Bay...

I'll hopefully be on the river 9/2. I return home on the 14th so can update you guys.

Our plan right now is to stay in a Campquetico cabin Sept 21st with supper & b'fast meals & have him shuttle us to Stanton early the 22nd. We'll stay 4-5 nights on Antoine, base camp fishing; & 3-4 nights on Pickerel before our Stanton pick-up.

Also, I'd emailed Barry at Campquetico about the Deux Rivers & he he replied today & said the water level is still above normal. He's had a couple of groups through there recently with no major problems. Good luck on your trips & thanks for any feedback before ours... Tom, when I get out I'll check my email for a pic of the 30" walleye you're going to get at Veron!

We are planning a couple of nights on Antoine as well, but just before you. Never been there but heard the fishing is excellent!

Right on. I'm locked and loaded.

I did the river north to south on 9/3. It sucks but I only had to pole myself along once near the sturgeon end. Very sticky mud around the beaver dams. For the big one I would recommend going over at the middle and not around it at the side. Almost lost a boot there.
I imagine water levels are similar now however I didn't havemuch rain at all since then. Best of luck.

Btw, going from camel to Eag, I decided to pass on cutty creek there. Looked like a mosquito infested hellhole.

I didn't make Veron but was on Camel 4 nights. Got a walleye dinner but mostly northern the 2 days I fished. Only 2 decent 16" smallies there. Moved to McDougal after a night on Russell. Loved McDougal but only a solid 17" SB and couldn't keep the 10 to 13 inches off my lures. But 3 real nice northerns over 30. The best at 38. These are very healthy solid fish probably gorging on all the smallies. Beautiful lake and I hope to get back there sometime. Lots of good bottom structure. I've heard big smallies are there.

Just an FYI. I've pulled Lakers out of McDougall also. The first time, it was in the narrows between the two larger lake sections, in the Spring.
