Both Diana and I independently thought that this looked a  lot like Wylie Lake.  But If it is Wylie Lake, you're lost!  Wylie Lake is not in AP.  But It is in the Petawawa drainage and Pine Country.

I have to admit that I felt a little guilty about snatching the previous wia away from you so quickly, but when you know the answer, it's hard to keep quiet.  Just like all those keeners back in elementary school.

Well, it depends upon which way you are going.  The location you posted is the one I originally intended to post, but I didn't have a good version that we hadn't published before.  Here  is "your" rock as approached from upstream.

This is from our trip log https://mcelroy.ca/bushlog/20150621.html

Our rock, the mystery location, is just a little farther downstream. 
You're up again Shawn.

So where is this picturesque spot?

I have no idea whether this is obscure or trivial.  My overall impression of this area was that while it was not too difficult to reach, it was very rugged.

Since this is obviously on a stream / creek / river, I will be looking for something somewhat more specific than just identifying the stream / creek / river.

Carcajou Lake from what some consider the primo campsite on the lake.
Credit to Diana for the identification and the above photo.

Yes Catfish Lake is correct.  martin2007 is up.  The exact location is from the campsite just south of the narrows and east of the feature marked "Turtle Rock" (incorrectly, I believe) on Jeff's Map.
The route from Canoe Lake to Brent used to be, and maybe still is, referred to as "main street".

The closest guess so far is Narrowbag.  I look forward to seeing the correct answer in the morning.

Not Mink Lake.
A couple of points:
I suspect that one of my clues probably date me.  That is, I am alluding to a nick name that is perhaps no longer current.
I further suspect that people are misjudging the size of the body of water we are looking at.

Not Lost Joe Lake.  It's not even close.  But that guess indicates that you've been paying attention.  You're on the right track (I think).

This is starting to frustrate me too. I guess everything is clear in retrospect.  But it seems to me, that on the basis of all that has been said, the answer should be obvious.  But to divert attention from the obvious answer, I created a (honest) diversion.  That diversion has worked too well.  Just stick to main street; avoid off the track alley ways.

My diversion is working even better than I could've hoped.  These clues are deceiving you as to what they are.

Not Perly, but Perly is a good guess.  But Perly is not consistent with all that has been said.  Yes "dead" in "dead giveaway" was sort of a clue but it is really obtuse.  More of a diversion than a clue.

Wright is wrong.
I guess my hints have been a little too subtle.  But if I were more forthcoming and identified the closest guess so far, for example, it would be a dead giveaway.

I'm surprised this flag tree hasn't been located yet, especially considering that it is on a main route.  Perhaps it is no longer standing; it has been a few years since we visited it.

The flag tree hasn't been located yet.  But it is situated just a little less than 12 km from the closest access point.
