I am planning a trip down the Drowning river near Nakina and would be willing to go tandem if someone is interested. I plan on leaving MN on Friday the 21st, putting in on Saturday 22nd, and returning the following Saturday or Sunday. Vehicle shuttle arrangements have been made.
As I understand it, the name 'Drowning' is a little misleading, unless you hit it in high-water. Otherwise it sounds like a reasonable paddle with some class1-2 rapids. Drowning river
