We took a three-hour trip down the North Saskatchewan River last week. We put in below the Quesnel Bridge. The water was up a tiny bit over summer levels but there doesn't appear to be much of a spring surge this year.
The Edmonton Queen is still in dry dock at Whitemud Creek.
There were a few boats on the water that day. A few days later it was +30 and the river had 100 kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards plus people lounging on all of the available beach space. Also swimmers!
Accidental beach was looking a bit beat up when we floated by. It isn't clear to me if the city will be keeping the berms that created the beach.
