We were, at one point, accompanied by an otter who lead us downstream for several kilometres.
The falls at Pogamosing was a welcome relief from the flat water and boulders of the Spanish. If we had had the time, we would have portaged up to Lake Pogamosing and explored. Regrettably, we did not. We camped downsteam from Pog and observed a black bear across the river during supper about 150 metres away. The bear spray came out that night! The rail line follows the river along this stretch, so we were reminded (rather loudly) of "civilization" a few times during the evening.
