Well the finishing touches are being put on our trip...

The plan is to drive to Temag and hop on Lakeland for the flight...

Day 1-Land in Trethewy and stay the night.

Day 2-Begin canoeing south to Elissa Lake.

Then head down North Lady E to Katherine Lake.

(from here we can either take the north or south channel to Willow - Please comment)

Willow Island Lake to Lady E and south to Diamond..Sharp Rock Inlet and then Ferguson Bay...

Then another choice..Either canoe L Temag or down Jackpine Creek to Kanichee, Net Lake Then Cassels Lake... and back to Lakeland..

Looking at 8 days total. Please comment..Thanks

Glenn

When are you planning to go?
May be difficult to cross over from Threthewey to Elissa in August if it is a real dry Summer.
Ask around for info about the Jackpine Lake route.Not sure how open it is.
Does anyone know?

Sorry...We are heading in on May 14th...

The Jackpine route may be a game day decision...May have to take L.Temag...

And if there is difficulty coming out of Trethewy, is Florence a better option??

Will be booking the flight in a week or so..

The Threthewey route should be OK in May. I have done it at least 2x in early May.

If you have a second car, you could shuttle one either down the Red Squirrel road, or to the public launch at Anima Nippissing. This would allow you to finish your trip by canoeing across the Muskego Wildlands, and avoid the expanse of Lake Temagami altogether.

My suggestion may be biased, as I am a great fan of the Muskego area. It is a very lightly travelled portion of the region, and has some excellent scenery.

I'll be in the park for a 16 day trip at the same time, so maybe we'll see each other!

Thanks Simonb...I've had difficulty trying to get a shuttle there and the second car is not an option...

I did a 5 day solo from Red Sq. to Aston, Anima last fall. It was great..

Glen:
I should have added.... that you should bring along an axe and a bow saw while travelling south of Threthewey to Elissa. Lot's of Alders in there and sometimes they can block the way.

You might also considering asking either Lakeland to shuttle your vehicle to Red Squirrel or one of the other outfitters in town... for a price...
They don't have to do it the day you leave but could do it several days later closer to when you arrive there. Just remember to take a second set of keys on your trip...
Just a thought.

Thanks

Look at the fish regulations for this year and see when trout can be taken. Try your luck in the Lady Evelyn River from Elissa and down.
There is usually some fishing activity in the early Spring on the river. It is also called the Trout Streams locally.

Thanks Irishfield:
I haven't fished in the trout streams, but I have passed through them on several occasions in the early Spring and have seen other more dedicated fishermen catching trout.
Glenn: You might try your luck in Threthewey also.Never fished in there either, but the local snowmobilers go in the winter to ice fish. Recently, there was a commercial outpost camp on the lake...so there must be some fishies in there.I think Long Lake Outfitters ran it before they retired.

We should definitely cross paths, as we are going against the grain on the river system. We should reach Lady Evelyn R on the 17th May.

I'm not sure what boats we are going to use yet. It will probably be a cedar strip, and the big red scott plastic, or if I feel like banging up my cedar strip for another season, 2 cedar strips.

If I decide to bring the cedar for another round of punishment, you won't miss us!
