Churchill River. Methy portage to Otter Lake. Features. 
Ed note: The Churchill River starts officially at the outlet of Churchill Lake; this makes no sense to me, for the fur-trade route extended farther upstream to Lac la Loche, and by any reasonable standard the Churchill’s source is the Beaver River.

Three routes from Trout Lake to Nipew (formerly Dead) Lake: 
1. Northern route: McIntosh Lake and Paull River confluence, Stack Lake, Rock Trout Portage, Mountney Lake, Nipew Lake. 
2. Central (voyageur) route: Trout Portage, Stack Lake, Rock Trout Portage, Mountney Lake, Nipew Lake. 
3. Southern route: Crew Lake, Torranee Lake, Nipew Lake.

Doré Lake and Delaronde Lake. Information. 
Doré Lake.
Waters of Doré Lake (with settlement with the same name) exit through the Doré River, which enters the Beaver River not far above Beauval.

Delaronde Lake. 
Located about 10 km north of Big River, off Rte 922. No exit was seen at Toporama; the Cowan River lies nearby and so the lake perhaps belongs to the basin of the Beaver River.
