My wife and I did ths paddle on a warm March day. The description in the guide is spot in just about every respect. The wildlife viewing tower was a bit difficult to spot at first. We did encounter several powered boats on Bayou du Chien but every one of them cut their power and idled past our canoe to avoid swamping us, which was much appreciated. We did the paddle as an out and back which made for a long paddle with no current to assist us. Nevertheless, we would recommend this paddle. We saw many birds, including a bald eagle, numerous fish, and turtles.
