WCPP lake names.
Not all lake names that occur in trip reports are listed at Toporama; most do appear however on the WCPP map. Here are ones that I have noted:
Amber L, Broken Arrow L, Constellation L (on Royd Crk, just E of Royd L), Gulch L, Jigsaw L, Joey L (not on the WCPP map), Lightning L, Mexican Hat L (obvious from topo), Nutria L, Streak L, Terry L (2 km SW of Wanda L), Upper Gammon L, Wanda L (3 km S of Dunstan L), and the chain of lakes (Crazy L, Pickerel L, Beaver L, My L) running westward from Simeon Lake and leading to the Bloodvein River between Barclay Lake and Mary's Lake.
Crystal Lake appears at Toporama, but as the small lake west of the Crystal Lake on the WCPP map.
I'll have to edit some entries accordingly.
Sources for some lake locations are

Simeon Creek. According to Toporama, it starts near Dunstan Lake and flows north to Simeon Lake. Some trip reports, however, place it as flowing toward Dunstan Lake from the southwest.

Berens River. Information.
According to Toporama, the Berens River starts at the outlet of Wavell Lake, which is however fed by the Serpent River.
Most Berens trips start at Pikangikum or Family Lake (Little Grand Rapids, with both an airfield and a floatplane base), but the Berens above Pikangikum is paddled; for example, look at

Bird River Routes. Information.
Most Bird River Routes that start in Manitoba cross into Ontario (North western area) at one point or another, but finish in Manitoba.
To avoid duplicate entries, I list such Routes under Manitoba only, unless the Route penetrates well into Ontario (Eagle Lake is not far enough).

Bloodvein River. Features.
Features on access routes from Red Lake.
Paddling access to the Bloodvein is provided by a variety of routes, including three known ones from Red Lake.
The following lists features on two of those routes; insufficient information is available to document fully the third route (Red Lake town, Red Lake, Douglas Lake, Gammon River, Donald Lake, Carroll Lake, Aikens Lake, Bloodvein River junction).
Northern route.
Ed note: This route lies entirely off the Bloodvein River.
Red Lake town, Red Lake, Hoyles Bay, Chukuni River, Little Vermilion Lake, Rathouse Lake, Valhalla Lake, Trough Lake, Olive Lake, Sabourin River (and “The Jungle”), Bigshell Lake, Thicketwood Lake (can portage over to Larus Lake to look at the pictograph site on Murdock Lake), Sabourin Lake and Sabourin Lake Lodge, junction with southern route and the Bloodvein River.
Southern route.
Ed note: This route joins the Bloodvein River only well toward the end.
Red Lake town, Red Lake, Pipestone Bay, Lund Lake, Knox Lake, Murdock Lake, Larus Lake and Bloodvein River, junction with the northern route.
Below the junction.
Barclay Lake, Mary’s Lake, Artery Lake, Manitoba boundary.

Davidson Lake Routes. Information.
Davidson Lake is accessible by road only from Manitoba (Rte 315).
Apart from the portage route to Tulabi Lake, however, all Routes starting from Davidson Lake enter Ontario (North western area) after at most a few km.
To minimize duplication of entries, I have adopted the following policy for Routes starting from Davidson Lake:
1. Routes ending in Ontario (for example at Umfreville Lake) are listed under Ontario only.
2. Routes returning to Davidson Lake are listed under Ontario only.
3. Routes ending elsewhere in Manitoba (for example at Tulabi Lake) are listed under Manitoba only, unless they penetrate well into Ontario.
