Detroit and St. Claire Rivers

I hope to make my way from Lake Erie to the North Channel this summer and wonder if anyone who has travelled on the Detroit and St. Claire Rivers could comment on the ease of travelling on those rivers. Is current a problem when heading upstream? What is the average current on the rivers? Are there some spots that are particularly bad? I assume that the rivers are very heavily travelled by commercial Great Lakes shipping, and that this poses a serious danger to us little guys. Do those of you who travel on those rivers regularly have suggestions as to how to ease that danger? Obviously, keeping a sharp lookout is important, but are there other things that you guys suggest that might ease this danger a bit?
I''m grateful for anything suggestions or ideas that might make the voyage a bit safer and easier.
Thanks,
Peter K.
