Antman, your comments disappoint me, we've all made mistakes and to think that a couple of 16 year old girls are carrying flares boggles my mind. 

The bush in Algonquin is definitely a tough place to navigate, I got disoriented bushwhacking between wagtail lake and the crow river for an hour or so about 5 years and it is terrifying. Hope they find these girls.

Heading to allan lake (friday) and north depot lake (saturday sunday). Going to daytrip up the North River on saturday. Was originally going to North River lake but changed my reservation after seeing how packed it was going to be.

If anyone wants the PDF of the Algonquin Jeff's Map let me know and I can send it via dropbox, it's almost 100mb and too large to e-mail. *

1. Fish Tacos- I mix taco spices with breading, bring tortillas, a bag of shredded slaw, avocadoes and oil. Brook trout tacos is my favourite camping meal. 
2. Kimchi korean instant noodles- cheap, satisfying and delicious. Not healthy whatsoever but very satisfying after a long day.
3. Indomie Mi Goreng instant noodles- probably the tastiest instant noodle out there, much better with a fried egg on top but still a delicious treat in the backcountry. It comes with a packet of seasoned oil, garlic powder, dark soy sauce, chili sauce and dried onions and is a stir fried noodle rather than a soup. Was introduced to it by my Filipino roommate in Australia, he lived off of it. The Real Canadian Superstore carries it as I'm sure most asian markets do. 
4. Tuna helper and bagged tuna. 
5. Knorr cajun red beans and rice. 

Sadly I don't own a dehydrator and I have a hard time shelling out 12 dollars on a freeze dried meal.

Too bad about the site, wonder if he stopped paying bills or got shut down from multiple people reporting him for taking their money and not sending the product, aka robbing them. About all that fraudulent hack "Eric" (not his real name) has done since he took the company over was post a dance video on the facebook page.

Hi all,

I am looking to do a route labour day weekend for 4-5 days and I am looking for suggestions. The main things I am looking for:

-Good fishing (trout, walleye, muskie, pike)
-Good wildlife viewing opportunities
-Not super long portages

So far I've been considering either Travers-McManus or Farm-Booth Lake.

Cheers,

Lenny

I was ice fishing a secret whitefish lake near Barry's Bay a couple of years ago and was told by a local on a snowmobile that he does all his ice fishing in Algonquin Park. He said they bring a portable heater, drill holes close to shore and stays in the trees because he said planes fly over to patrol for ice fishing (which I find hard to believe). I assume the area he was talking about is on the border of the park close to Aylen Lake.

Haven't witnessed anything terrible in Algonquin's backcountry compared to what I've seen on Crown Land. One thing that bothered my thing spring was that the site on Clamshell Lake was absolutely littered with cigarette butts.

Thanks everyone! It was a great trip. Fbeauregard, you were correct, the portage from Allan to North Depot was runnable. There is a note about a wadeable channel on the portage on Jeff's Map from Wendigo but we were not able to find it. Portages were all quite flat and easy. The most amazing part of the weekend was there weren't any bugs out! 

Wendigo Lake Road is not in great shape. Lots of rocks, potholes, loose gravel and one washout. Made it through with my Honda Civic, but likely won't go back without a truck or SUV.

Hi all,

Can't wait for next weekend- doing a solo trip down Wendigo to Clamshell Lake with my dog for two nights.

Does anyone have any suggestions on things to see along the way or portages that can be run? Also- is Wendigo-Clamshell Lake in a day pushing it? I'm planning on doing a daytrip to Radiant, can't wait! I hope the fish are cooperating!

Cheers,

Lenny

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to get canoes delivered to the North River Access Point. Reluctant to bring mine as last time I did I wound up with some dents and scratches on the top of my car from driving through the washed out road and potholes (no roof rack just foam pads). Would mean one less thing for me to worry about!

Cheers,

Lenny

Eric is a fraud and hack! He uses mental health issues as an excuse for robbing people. The only thing he has done recently is post a dancing video on the Jeff's Map facebook page. Based on what Jeff posted on MYCCR he owes Jeff a ton of money and refused to change the name after refusing to make any changes.

Going on a week long fishing trip with my dog May 6-12. Just need to figure out where I'm going. So hard to decide! I imagine the rivers are all going to be very high.
