I finally got this trip report written up from July 2014. It was a 3 day trip into Wolf Lake starting from the public launch on Matagamasi Lake. We had beautiful weather and the wind was really nice to us.

Thanks rwaywell for the good blog and the great pictures. I was thinking about a very similar trip but in a kayak. Would you recommend it?

You are right about the impression of the Toenail Portage so I fixed that on the map.

Richtheo - Kayak wouldn't be too bad for the 'there and back' style trip that we did. There is only the one portage on the way from Matagamasi up to Wolf Lake. I think if you were trying to do a loop, then the portages would get to be a pain with the kayak.

Brian - Thanks for the update on the map!

I'd insist there's 2 portages from Matagamasi to Wolf. First of them is sometimes runnable, but not in average July or August water levels, and tracking it is no fun.

Eddy_turn - Both portages show on the map. We lined up and down the first one on our way in and out.
