I am entertaining the possibility of traveling to Schefferville next summer. I know this is a rather esoteric travel destination, but I've wanted to go for the past 10 yrs but never have gotten around black dating schefferville qc it.
Could someone advise me when during the summer is the best time to travel there? Early July would be my 1st choice since its probably the best combo with long hours of daylight and warm temps. If so what time during the summer is best to avoid at least the worst of them? Additionally, I am a big outdoors person and am looking for suggestions on anything to do up there. I'm pretty open to anything out in the wilderness there. Traveling to and from there is not an issue for me since I have my private pilots license can't wait to take tons of black dating schefferville qc from the air!
Even since flying over far northern Quebec on a UAL flight from Paris to Wash DC in I've wanted to explore one of the few wild places left that no one on black dating schefferville qc street has heard of!! Can't specifically say about Shefferville, but when they talk about mosquitoes being bad Part of it depends on how wet the summer is as well. Seems the further north you go, the worse they are. I guess the short summer season sets their little biological clock on overdrive, and they only want to do one thing In a bad year, you will almost need a Blood transfusion of you don't have deet.
Just slightly exaggerating. We basically made sure we never had any black dating schefferville qc flesh and, every time we ventured outside the truck we spray our hard hat and clothes around our face with DEET. As for flying up there you did not mention if you have a float plane. Thanks very much for the info! I've heard that the bugs up there subarctic in general are wayyy worse to have to deal with than the extreme cold is. Correct me if I'm wrong, but now I'm thinging that April might be the best time to go since its still snowcovered and cold, but not unpleasantly so, and the bugs still haven't come outsimilar to Connecticut in January.
Also I'll still have almost as much daylight as August. Additionally, the lakes still being frozen over would make good spots in the very unlikely event i had to make an emergency off-airport landing--much better than landing in a bog in the summer!!
I'll be flying a regular planenot a seaplane. I can comfortably fly the 2nd leg into Schefferville with a black dating schefferville qc hr fuel reserve and if that isn't enough, Labrador City Wabush is a convenient alternate airport. Lol, you may find yourself sharing a runway with them Once you are into rural Quebec If this is a concern to you… coming from the USA I am not sure how much French you have You do realize that Schefferville has a population of about ?

The Rouge River is a Quebec mainstay, and it is commonly run by all manner of river craft. It is a big-volume tributary of the Ottawa River flowing out of the Laurentians about one hour east of Ottawa. While the Rouge has a number of paddleable sections, the Singles over 40 in riviГЁre-rouge qc Sisters is the most popular, and infamous.
The upper section of the 7 Sisters is best at high flows that render the Sisters waterfalls unrunnable. This beta is for the waterfalls - they typically run at times of low flow late in the summer. Don't bother with this section of river at low flows unless you intend to run the Sisters.
It is still nice scenery and good photo opportunities singles over 40 in riviГЁre-rouge qc if that's your bag, but don't expect good whitewater aside from the main drops.
To reach the Rouge, head east from Ottawa along Hwy 50 until it forces you on the Hwy Once you cross the Rouge River, there is a small campground on the east side of the highway. This is the take out. Depending on the season there may be a small charge to park there. Head to the put-in by continuing east along Hwy for one kilometer, and turn left onto Ch. De la Riviere Rouge. Remain on Ch. Parking is an issue here. The rafting companies offer parking for a small fee.
At low flow when you'll be here for the falls it is a nice boogey Class III. This one is run at high flows as well, with a boily recirculating mess at the bottom. The sound of the falls will indicate the start of the canyon and Singles over 40 in riviГЁre-rouge qc There is also a cleared trail on the right to portage this section if you are running at higher water. This canyon section is deserving of some respect. The holes are powerful and have delivered some brutal beatdowns through the years.
That said, the lines are straightforward, there is ample opportunity to set good safety, plan and scout. Get your boof on. Editor's note: People will argue this is class V whitewater - I fully disagree - unless you're running the singles over 40 in riviГЁre-rouge qc at the high end at 40 or 50 cms this is a very forgiving spot - the pools are huge, the lines are wide and even though the holes can be sticky it is probably the easiest river around to set up great safety - go try it out.
Number 2: Easy boof off the obvious flake. You can eddy out if you like or just roll into the next drop. They are separated only by a short moving pool.
Number 3: Different levels bring different lines. This one is a rolling 10 footer, typically run on the right edge trying to clear the pocket hole. A good ledge for safety is just below the hole, river left. Number 4: Two line choices. Boof left or plug right. This one is pretty simple and heaps of fun but a little more difficult to set safety.
Number 5 is a steep and bouncy ledge through a powerful hole. The current then bends around a corner, working to pull you off line. Number 6 lies about 50 feet downstream and is a uniform ledge hole with a rounded lip.
The drop is probably 6 feet in height, with a slight weakness on the river left side. Get your bow up and keep stroking hard as there is a significant tow-back. If you want to run a second lap, take out just downstream on the river right side and walk the cleared cart path to the top. Number 7: About yards downstream lies Number 7.
Typically run on the river right, it is a bouncy slide with a rooster tail to launch off of. It can be shallow in the run out so keep your head dry. Look for a trail and head up to your car. Note: This entire section is known as the Seven Sisters, even though most people don't run the falls that often.
Although the river often floods over cms in spring, it will run for a large part of the spring and summer at a much more reasonable flow. With levels of 75 - cms this run becomes prime for playboaters offering a good variety of surf spots and wicked fun big-water rapids. Check it out sometime as an alternate choice to the flatwater of the Gatineau or the line-ups of the Ottawa.
Big ledges with stout holes. Level: Under 50 cms on the Rouge gauge with being the most common. Time: hours. When To Go: Mid summer through fall, when the river is low. Info From: Many runs between 20 and 45 cms.
