canoed from Hope to Agazzis in an Ocean kayak when the Fraser was NOT in flood stage. no problems if you know how to kayak. Also had two person canoes in the group and they had no problems either. Small whirlppools, boils, sometimes a bit faster water. Right outside Hope at the put in ( near bridge ) were some waves.. you can see them from the highway/put in.

Harrison Lake to Richmond ... some smaller waves at the harrison/fraser confluence... didn't come across/remember a standing wave so you probably can avoid it if there is one.

Did it in large Voyager canoes with 10 people in it Note.. after Mission the Fraser becomes tidal and you will have to paddle... we were lucky as the tides were in our favor. It's a long paddle.

I'm not a white water kayaker but feel comfortable on water and moderate current/ waves ( class II w occ class III ) small whirlpools and boils, eddying in/out of currents.

As for sights... nothing in particular ...just the usual riverfront industry, animals
