North sask has some great sections I have canoed. Have never done it in a drift.
From Rocky Mt House to Drayton Valley (Wiley West campground has a takeout) is about a 3-5 day trip IIRC. Drayton to Berrymoor bridge is 2 day float. Neither have rapids.
Red Deer is good, too, but last year levels were way way down and you could hardly canoe the thing. Low rainfall = low dam release.

I've always seen it done with someone at the oars.
I would think about bringing a good anchor or two and setting them upstream of or beside the holes you wanna fish. Dunno if that works or if its frowned upon by anglers. Otherwise eddy out and fish from shore!
