I called in to change a reservation for that May 14th weekend. When I tried to extend reservation and book May 13th (orange online) , the agent said that was not even possible. First come first serve after ice out declared. Did I get a rookie agent who is not well informed?  Should I have been able to book May 13th via phone?

Heading to Sunbeam Solo May 13-16 trying to beat the crowds (and bugs) - 1st time to this part of the Park.
Route -  That time of year, is Blue Jay and Vanishing pond the way to go, or should I expect water levels to be a challenge? Planning on Sunbeam down to Tom Thompson on my way out. Any opinions / expectations for water levels though Aster and Willow?   
Fishing on Sunbeam - I have read brook and lake trout. I have heard bass as well. With proximity to Hwy 60,  should I be thinking primarily LT and bass?
Bugs – my first early season trip. Am I early enough to beat the bugs?  What should I expect? Would 1st weekend in May be significantly better?
Opinions appreciated.

First off, I love my Sawyer Mini. What I don't care for is the Sawyer squeeze bags. I have split 2, and punctured 1. How about other Sawyer users, same experience? FYI, As a work around, I found a 710ml plastic Coke / Diet Coke bottle has the same threads. Light, can be crushed pretty flat, and is almost bulletproof. Any other (non hanging) workarounds?

thanks. You correctly assumed I have a 'tall' backpacking style pack. Good to know that I wasn't just missing some technical workaround related to yoke placement or other. 
That's why this forum is so damn useful.

I have done a couple solos over the last few years. Always double carried. Seems like center mounted seat always interferes with the top of my pack. Is there any other solution except to reduce height of my pack (ie empty the top pouch,  and  / or lengthen shoulder straps to lower the pack on my shoulders? 3.3 K walking vs 10K into Linda seems like worth asking the question. 
thanks in advance.

I  wanted to 'close out' my Labour Day trip with 1st hand account of Tim River to Rosebary for those that may venture that way soon. May post as a formal Trip Report later. 
1) Chris at Algonquin Basecamp's intel is / was 1st rate! The knee deep muck and 10 beaver dam / lift overs was spot on.
2) SE campsite on Rosebary  (narrows to Longbow) is indeed a nice site. Even better when it isn't windy I would expect.
3) 1" of rain makes a big difference. Return trip was 4 hrs instead of 5. and only 1/2 as much lifting/ wading. 
4) We did not get 'leached' but other parties we spoke with did in the Tim River
5) We did have a close encounter with a nice Bull Moose where Tim meets Rosebary - My daughter is thrilled.
Thanks to those that contribute to a positive Algonquin experience on these forums.
