Hi All,

I'm new to Myccr and am enjoying all the info and discussions!

I'm considering following an old ambition to canoe the Aubinadong River East Branch from Five Mile Lake to Mississagi River. When I was 13 and car camping at Five Mile Lake PP (closed in 1983) our family tried out our first canoe...a three keel Watson fibreglass canoe. From this point in time I was hooked and wanted more canoeing. I remember at the time a trapper on Five Mile Lake told us about a canoe route starting Five Mile Lake and was intrigued. Now retired I want to go full circle and canoe this route.

From Myccr my search ended with 2 trip reports. One from Honey Lake to Mississagi R and the other from Vezina Lake to Wabus L and back. Not enough information for planning. I sent a note to Kevin Callan and he remembered a MNR biologist was going to do the complete trip but ended up retiring.

Does anybody have any info on the route? I'm certain no maintenance has been done for decades. I'm thinking more about info on water levels, best time of year, and logging impacts near Five Mile Lake. All I really have is the canoe route marked on the "Backroad Mapbook" for Northeastern Ontario and the Ontario Parks Management plan which only covers the PP portion of the River from Honey Lake to Mississagi River.

Thanks and Cheers!
