Good morning all. I am new to Temagami park, and am looking for suggestions for a week long trip that includes solitude and great fishing.
Any ideas?

Thanks

Put-in at Twinkle, through Solace area and down the Sturgeon River to Pilgrim and back to Twinkle through Yorston. Great lake trout, smallmouth and walleye in this route.

2) Solace area http://www.ottertooth.com/Temagami/Maps/heartland0 2.htm 3) Upper Sturgeonhttp://www.ottertooth.com/Temagami/Maps/heartland0 3a.htm
4) Sturgeon (Kettle to Pilgrim) http://www.ottertooth.com/Temagami/Sites/chini10.h tm
And then back to first map.

Alternatively, this route could be accessed via the Gervais Road to the upper Sturgeon.

I would also suggest you buy a couple of maps, Natural Resources Canada maps with a scale of 1:50000 are pretty good but you need a few to cover all of Temagami. Ontario MNR has a map «Temagami Canoe Routes» that covers all of Temagami. This map should be available Finlayson Point Provincial Park.

Twinkle lake access was closed last summer for bridge replacement. It might still be difficult to negotiate coming summer - see recent posts on this forum re: Obabika bridge. If it's open still beware of the last 12km after the Obabika bridge: this is a rough trail, which might be too difficult for sedan. Gervais road access is much easier.

Temagami is not a park, it's a territory, most of it is crown land, but it also includes a few provincial parks. The route suggested above runs through 2 of them: Sturgeon river and Solace parks.

I wouldn't count on using Twinkle Lake as an access point. I got a pickup there in 2013 and the paint job on my truck (a mid-size Tacoma) took a toll.... Unless someone has walked the last few kms with a chain saw since then I wouldn't recommend it.

My mistake: the bridge was closed in July 2013, not 2014. It's doubtful that the problem Doublebend describes was mended since then - if anything it's probably got much worse.
