    EGL Fall 2022 - EGL HEADS NORTH TO TEMAGAMI!!!

    EGL HEADS NORTH TO TEMAGAMI!!!



    Keewaykeno's been championing this trip for a while, so maybe it's best that I just quote him here verbatim.


    We've tossed around a Temagami trip for a while so let's give it a shot this year, assuming the world doesn't go completely to hell in the interim. Setting dates early will give help those who need to plan far ahead to set the time aside.

    The Friends of Temagami folks suggested the last week of September is optimal for fewer people, no bugs, great fishing and good chance of decent weather.

    I'm proposing six nights from Tuesday Sept. 27 through Monday October 3. This provides a longer trip for those who can get away but also a shorter weekend opportunity for "marshmallows".
    My research suggests a good access point with decent roads is the Sportsman's Lodge where there is secure parking for a nominal fee. I will correspond with the owner for details once I have a sense of how many are interested to ensure he can accommodate the numbers.

    Our destination will be Donald Lake, only two short (295 m. and 860 m.) portages. Map below.

    For those who follow him in YouTube this was Jon's (then 'Backcountry Angler' now 'Lost Lakes') favourite lake before he moved north of Superior. The North end is said to be reminiscent of Killarney, with good sites and fishing with several day-tripping opportunities. This lake is within the non-operating Chiniguchi Waterway Provincial Park ... so no permits required. That's right Highboy, FREE (except for the mortgage you'll need for the gas to get there).

    OK, so who's interested (and actually may be able to go)? Not talking commitment, just want to get a rough idea of numbers. I'll give it a week before I reach out to the Sportsman's Lodge.

    Cheers,

    KeeWayKeno


    So there you have it! Temagami this fall!

    I'm pumped! Any other takers?

    Even though you made me look too old to get "pumped" about much more than a hit of Geritol & a nap, of course I'm in.

    What're you talking about? That's a great shot! Like Ernest Hemingway in a Tilly!

    And thats what it should cost to camp in this gigantic, beautiful country.
    As for the mortgage for gas,the fees I would have had to pay to camp in temagami proper will cover my fuel.
    A relatively cheap trip really. Plus the company is worth it.
    Cant wait for this one.
    No signs,no fees,no rules,nobody. My kind of campsite.
    See and understand the obvious and the mysteries will disappear.

    Interested in marshmallowing it up. Hopefully I can go for 2 or 3 nights. Getting close to a year since I've canoed with my EGL friends and really hoping to see you lollygaggers and get out on the water.

    Please count me in. I'm not sure if I can do all 7 nights but probably 5 nights. I've been to Donald Lake once before and can attest it is a beautiful area.

    Looks like I'm only going to be able to do 3 nights. I forgot my dad's 90th birthday is on the Saturday so it looks like I will be paddling out on the Friday. Oh well, I will take what I can get.
