As far as we are concerned, the Morell should be a Canadian Heritage River. It was probably named for Jean-Francois Morel, a French settler in the early 1700s, who was married near its mouth in 1739.The Morell is a first-class river in every way. The entire trip could take you from two to three hours, depending on your inclination to dawdle. We paddled the length of the river in ninety minutes only because of a strong wind at our backs the entire way. If we had taken our golf umbrella, as we usually do, we could have sailed the entire way, but that would not have been as much fun as paddling. Your put-in, just below the bridge facing downriver on the right bank, is a lovely launch area of mounded clay. Load your craft here and slip into the moderate current. There is no better feeling than to push off from shore and be instantly lifted with the momentum of a moderate river current. The banks of the river are totally wooded. Look out for some downed trees, but these will not obstruct your journey.
