I've never been to Temagami in May, and I see from the Ottertooth website that fishing can get quite busy there. My silly question is, how busy? Are the tin boat crowds mostly on the big lake, or do things get crowded elsewhere : Chiniguchi, Wasaskina, Smoothwater, Diamond...Is May the wrong time to go for some quiet canoeing? I just want to hopefully mix in a little fishing before the bug season.
Fishing is not a big deal for me, but peace, quiet , and reflection are.
Thanks for your thoughts and advice.

I think you will find weekends busy, but away from the big lake the week days
are usually pretty quiet. We generally go near the end of May and most times
we don't see anyone. Once you do one or two portages you will be alone.

No first-hand experience with the spring fishing crowd in Temagami... in Algonquin, the rush to get into trout lakes can be too much sometimes (like, no place to park because of all the vehicles packed in). All the good trout lakes with easy access attract lots of anglers ready to fish after a long winter, but lakes with poor fishing will be empty (scenery and wildlife, OTOH, can be great).

Temagami might be something the same, just a guess. IIRC, there are quite a few lakes there where trout are absent.

I guess if I want some solitude, I'd have to earn it over a couple or so portages. I'm not having a rant against the fishing crowd; I'd also like to (for the first time) try to catch a pickerel or two for our dinner. I suppose everyone wants to find that quiet spot away from everyone, with one frypan size fish waiting there.
