Trent Severn Waterway - water levels in late season?

I'd like to know about peoples' experience traveling the Trent-Severn Waterway in a 5' draft sailboat later in the boating season, say August or even September? Any issues with water levels being lower later in the season?

I have inquired with the Parks Canada about this but I am also looking for sailors' experience in this forum.

Thanks.

Re: Trent Severn Waterway - water levels in late season?

We are planning to do thee TS this summer but earlier and with 4'3" draft so don't expect issues. A previous boat was 5' draft and we were going to do the system but were dissuaded by stories of hitting things even when in the channel. Parks Canada now and closer to your departure date would be your best source of current info.
