The aerial image in the video shows that the travellers paddled from the end of the 2nd portage at Parc Brebeuf all the way to Deschenes. How did they travel through the Remic Rapids below the Champlain Bridge?

The Remic Rapids at the Champlain Bridge would have been where they began poling or lining, probably most of the way to the Upper Portage.
