Dubawnt River - Kazan River. Connector. Notes.
Ed note: Dubawnt River entries are posted almost entirely in NT, Kazan River entries almost entirely in NU.
Nowleye Lake (like Wollaston Lake) has two exits and is the height-of-land between two river systems, in this case the Dubawnt and the Kazan; the only significant tributary of the lake is the Nowleye River, which enters it from the south.
Nowleye Lake to Angikuni Lake and the Kazan River.
The connecting river (according to Toporama, not the Nowleye River) has been paddled by several parties.
Nowleye Lake to Kamilukuak Lake and Dubawnt River system.
The small stream is clearly shown on Google Earth; I didn’t see it at either Toporama or mytopo; it was ground-truthed by David Demello. All known parties have portaged it.
The crossing was made by Eric Morse’s party, Bill Layman's party, David Demello's, Bob Schaefer's Brian Johnston's and likely others who have posted reports; it was scouted by John McKay's.
Thanks to David Demello for much of the above.

Dubawnt River - Thelon River. Connector. Notes.
Connects the Thelon River (above the canyon) with the Dubawnt River (above Dubawnt Lake).
Traversed by Michael Peake’s party (Dubawnt to Thelon) and by Brian Johnston’s party (Thelon to Dubawnt). I don’t believe that the two parties used the same route (Peake refers to Barlow Lake on the Dubawnt, Johnston to Carey Lake); unlike Johnston's, Peake's account provides no details.

Ed note: For Route and other information, consult also entries filed under Clarke River, Dubawnt River, Elk River, Hanbury River and Radford River.
Source: NT Government, Our Top Waterways.
“This Canadian Heritage River is a magnet for canoeists. Mainly flatwater it rises in the Barrens east of Great Slave Lake and flows through the Thelon Game Sanctuary to Baker lake, in Nunavut. Access to the headwaters is by floatplane from Yellowknife to Lynx Lake.”
Thelon articles published in Nastawgan (WCA journal).
http://wildernesscanoe.ca/NastIndx.php?category=nastrip
Access/egress points.
Whitefish Lake, Lynx Lake, Elk River, Jim Lake, Mary Frances Lake, Eyeberry Lake, Clarke River, Hanbury River system, Radford Lake, Warden's Grove, Dubawnt River system, Beverly Lake (usually west end), Baker Lake (scheduled flights), Chesterfield Inlet (scheduled flights); many others are likely possible.
Thelon canyon.
http://www.thelon.com/kanawa2.htm
Some parties portage on river left (as we did), others on river right. At least one party lined it successfully on river left; another party tried the same, lost a boat and was stranded in difficult circumstances [Source: Nastawgan].
Cross-listing.
To avoid far too much cross-listing, I list Thelon entries in NT or NU according to the access point; as a result, nearly all Thelon information is posted here, rather than in NU.

Thelon River to Back River, via Meadowbank River (NU). Connector. Information.
No Meadowbank information worth posting here was found on the web.
Ed notes:
1. The Meadowbank is a tributary of the Back River. It is rarely if ever paddled in its own right, but rather as a connecting route between the Back River and the Thelon River, in both directions.
2. The trip upstream on the Meadowbank (from the Back) is reputed to be a tough slog. Source: George Luste, private communication.
3. The connector was travelled by Clayton Klein, Ray and Jenny Jardine, the 2005 Borealis group, and other parties.
