Sorry, I never saw your thread here. I was out at the COTS, so missed it. You don't need a permit to paddle outside of the parks. BL is nowhere near a park (not for long, if I have my way!).

Parking at the public access point on Cassels Lake is generally safe, but there is a risk wherever you go.

And sure, let us all know how it went. It's a real nice route. "East of the Highway" is the Rodney Dangerfield of Temagami.

Watersong..you are right..it was beautiful..this area has its own micro climate..finding the back route into Dalton Lake was great also opposite side of lake from the portage route and we travelled up to the swamp and were able to spend a whole day watching wildlife and also made it up to the clear cut between Cassels and Blueberry where we tracked a moose!!!.Paul/Veronica
