Chesterfield Inlet; Baker Lake to Hudson Bay. Journal.
Segment of a trip from Princess Mary Lake to Hudson Bay.
Klein, Clayton. Cold Summer Wind. Wilderness Adventure Books, Lansing (1985).
Route description: Princess Mary Lake, Kunwak River, Thirty Mile Lake, Kazan River, Baker Lake, Chesterfield Inlet, Quoich River confluence, Chesterfield Inlet settlement (on Hudson Bay).
Ed note: Report is filed also under Kazan River and Kunwak River.

Dubawnt River. Information.
Grinnell, George James. A Death on the Barrens; a true story. Northern Books, Toronto (1996). The second edition was published by Heron Dance Press in 2006. Stony Rapids, Chipman Portage, Bompas Lake, Selwyn Lake, Wholdaia Lake, then the Dubawnt River to Baker Lake.
Ed notes:
1. I haven’t heard of a party starting on the Dubawnt proper above Wholdaia Lake, which is well below the Dubawnt’s source.
2. The headwaters of the Dubawnt lie in the Northwest Territories. The river crosses into Nunavut at the west end of Dubawnt Lake.
3. When appropriate, Dubawnt reports are listed in both the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Routes folders.
Luste, George. A Memory of the North. The Beaver, Summer 1971, pp 48-52. Photos with text.

Dubawnt River. Features.
To be prepared; tentative list follows.
... , Wholdaia Lake, Allen Lake?, Hinde Lake, Boyd Lake, Barlow Lake, Carey Lake, Markham Lake, Nicholson Lake, Dubawnt Lake, Outlet Bay, Dubawnt Canyon, Grant Lake, Canoe Point, Wharton Lake, Marjorie Lake, Beverly Lake and Thelon River junction

Dubawnt River to Kazan River. Connector. Notes.
The route joining the two river systems passes through Nowleye Lake, with Kamilukuak Lake on the Dubawnt side and Angikuni Lake on the Kazan side.
Like Wollaston Lake, Nowleye Lake has two exits, here a river to Angikuni and a small stream to Kamilukuak; that is, Nowleye Lake is the height-of-land between the two river systems.
The river from Nowleye to Angikuni has been paddled by several parties; it is not however the Nowleye River, which flows into Nowleye Lake from the south.
The small stream flowing from Nowleye to Kamilukuak is clearly shown on Google Earth and has been ground-truthed by David Demello; it is not however shown at Toporama, nor I gather on topos. It usually lacks enough water to be paddled and all known parties have portaged. There is however the possibility that it could be lined/tracked. [Source: Private message from David Demello].
The crossing has been made by Bill Layman's party and David Demello's, and it was scouted by John McKay's.
Thanks to David Demello for much of the above.

Meadowbank River. Information.
Ed notes:
1. The Meadowbank is rarely if ever paddled in its own right, but rather as a connecting route between the Back River and the Thelon River, both ways.
2. The trip upstream on the Meadowbank (from the Back) is reputed to be a tough slog [George Luste, private communication.]

Common access points.

Common exit points.
Thelon Bluffs, just above Beverly Lake, at the west end of Beverly, Baker Lake settlement (scheduled flight).
The Thelon canyon.
Some parties portage on river left (as we did), others on river right. I read one report of a party that was able to line it on river left; doing so could well be dangerous though.
Cross listing.
When appropriate, I'll try to list Thelon reports in both the NT and NU stickys. Better check the NT entries anyway.
