Wollaston Lake. Information. 
Ed notes: 
1. Wollaston Lake is the source of both the Fond du Lac River (which flows into Lake Athabasca and the Athabasca River) and the Cochrane River (which flows, via Manitoba, into Reindeer Lake and so into the Churchill River). It is little paddled for its own sake, but rather as a means to access the Cochrane River, the Fond du Lac River and the Reindeer River (by the height-of-land portage from the south end). 
2. Routes exiting Wollaston Lake by the Cochrane River are filed in the Manitoba North region, at 
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=113&t=34109 , 
this because all known parties continued on the Cochrane River well into Manitoba. 
3. Routes exiting Wollaston Lake by the Fond du Lac River are filed in this post. 
4. Routes entering or exiting the lake by Reindeer Lake are filed in the Reindeer subregion of the Lower Churchill region, at 
http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtop ... 11&t=42031 
5. Wollaston Lake, the lake. 
Access to the west side is provided by Rte 905, access to the east side by air to the settlement.

Kazan subregion. 
Ed notes: 
1. No Route entries. 
2. Located to the southwest of the Four Corners. Only a tiny northeast part of Saskatchewan drains into Kasba Lake, the main tributary of the the Kazan River. Primary SK waters are the Schwandt River system (including Misaw Lake) and Hasbala Lake (including Many Islands Lake and Ledford Lake). 
3. Hasbala Lake and Wakula Lake can in principle be used to access the Kazan River but Kasba Lake Lodge is better for that purpose. 
Hasbala Lake. 
A means of access may be the fishing lodge at 
http://www.hasbalalake.com/ 
It is unclear whether Clayton Klein (Cold Summer Wind) used Hasbala Lake (SK) or Wakula Lake (MN and NU) to access the Kazan River. 
ALLAN: Check Cold Summer Wind, 1 and 2.
