Frenchman Canals, Marsh, & It's Two Lakes - All the canal mentioned in this section are those canals the can be paddled or motored depending on ones skill level and attention to safety. Do not access any of the canals/channels north of I90 as they are dangerous due to all the pipes and very low bridges that cross them. Even the canals/channels south of I90 can potentially be dangerous as show in this picture of a canoe rapped around a rock in the Frenchman Canal. This picture was taken just a few hundred feet before the canal empties into the Potholes Reservoir. During spring run off is the most dangerous time of the year to paddle/boat these canals. In 2012 we will explore of the canals/channels around the Potholes Reservoir, so stay tuned to this section.
