Location: Toronto
Region Hudson Bay and James Bay north


Coverage of the region.
Ontario waters entering directly into Hudson Bay, from Manitoba to Cape Henrietta Maria,
plus waters of the Opasquia area,
plus waters entering James Bay north of and including the Albany River.

Exclusions.
Waters (for example the Moose River system) entering James Bay south and east of the Albany River system.

Ed notes:
1. Route information for the region is posted also in CCR’s Routes section, at
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/451/canoeroutes
2. In order to assist the paddler, I split the region into the obvious two subregions, Hudson Bay and James Bay north.
3. In turn, I split each subregion into sections (some of which I split into subsections).
Explicitly, subregion Hudson Bay has three sections: Opasquia, Severn and Winisk, and
subregion James Bay north has four: Ekwan, Attawapiskat, Albany and Greenstone.
4. The volume of the material, plus the limit of 60,000 characters per post, plus other considerations, required five posts for the region. Please consult the list at the bottom of this post.

Wabakimi.
Ed note: In order to maintain the integrity of the Wabakimi region, many entries properly belonging to the basin of James Bay are posted instead in the Wabakimi region.

Lake Superior basin.
Ed note: In order to maintain the integrity of the Greenstone section, some entries are posted both in the region Hudson Bay-James Bay north and in the region Lake Superior basin.

James Bay south.
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=36209

.

Start subregion Hudson Bay

Coverage.
Ontario waters flowing directly into Hudson Bay, entering it from Manitoba eastward to Cape Henrietta Maria, plus waters of the Opsquia area.
Except for those of the Opasquia area, Ontario waters flowing into Hudson Bay via Manitoba are posted elsewhere.

Explicit inclusions.
Severn River and its tributaries (Cobham River, Fawn River, Sachigo River, Windigo River).
Winisk River and its tributaries (Asheweig River, Pipestone River).
Ed note: Many other rivers belong to the basin but are rarely paddled recreationally, likely because only the Severn and the Winisk are served by flights.

Pickle Lake.
Both lake and settlement (access by Rte 599 and by air).
The lake belongs to the basin of the Attawapiskat River (not the Winisk River).
The settlement is used to access also the Pipestone River and so the Winisk River.
