Just wondering if anyone knows how passable the Still river is from Highway 69 to Noganosh Lake, or if the route has ever been attempted by anyone here on the forums. Im thinking of using it as a leg in a much larger trip. Im only concerned because it appears to be very small on most topographic maps almost like a stream. Ive turned up no info on the river anywhere but a quick google maps scan reveals what appears to be flowing river.

Been covered here before (multiple times).
In a nutshell, nope.

okay thanks
Couldn't find that, searches just turned up posters who suggested trying the area/route and it seemed like a workable route

Heh y'know you're right, I guess I was thinking of the old site I was pretty sure there was a long discussion on it. I've only gone as far as looking downstream from Moose Lk. (easy to get into) and upstream from Hwy. 69 and it has never looked like there was enough water for anything I'd try. But I'm lazy like that.

Not sure what your gameplan was but the Key River might have enough water to keep you floating more than dragging down to 69. Both have their water levels maintained by dams so a call to the Parry Sound MNR would answer most questions.

Hey guys,

Just came across this thread years later. I started in at the mouth of the Still River and made it all the way up the railbridge near Moose Lake this past Spring. There were some sections with tons of logs across and some shallow areas, but other than that it was do-able. My way back down to the Mag only took about 4 hours with the current. Fun trip but it was a tough journey with all the pull-outs.

Thanks,

Nate

I’ve wondered about that route for years. How did you connect to the Mag from Moose L?

I didn't connect to Moose Lake but I went to a smaller lake to the south of the Still. There are some pretty steep cliffs between Moose Lake and the river, but I'm sure you could navigate your way up as I did to the south. It is a very cool and unique area that is under-utilized.
