    Default Chiniguichi 2022 l A Fall Canoeing Adventure

    Tonight at 7pm our latest canoe adventure will be up for viewing on YouTube. Our 6 day adventure of the Chiniguichi Waterway had us travelling a total of 80+km over 6 days. The fishing was excellent. Hope you enjoy the scenery.

    Nice trip-thanx for sharing.
    Reminds me of me and another 6 people went 3 years ago to Ispathina,to climb the"Mountain".78 km,62km paddling,rest was portage.
    We did it in 4.5 days or 4 nights .....Early August.
    Great great weather-no fishing, but we had nice big swims in the Smoothwater lake.
    No blackflies,and generally shorts and T shirts weather.
    Once had a half day rain only-we got lucky.

    One advice i could give to anyone-Go when the weather makes the trip enjoyable.When it is cold, windy and especially rainy-the beauty is taken out from the trip.

    16km of portage makes for a memorable trip. I find anymore I remember the hard times more than when things go easy. If a day is too short there's too much time to kill. Do you have any routes plans for next year. I am eager to start the planning process again. Thanks for watching.

    If you enjoy a challenge, could try fully crossing Algonquin.
    Enter on access point 26, exit (if I remember correctly) at 17

    Done it about 15-17 years ago. 10 nights, with some serious portages and arrangements for drop off/pickup by a friend.
    However the scenery is well worth it and it comes with bragging rights [emoji6][emoji6][emoji6]

    Ya, one of my buddies did that trip. His advice would be to do it in 14 days so ya have time to fish.

    This might be a fun challenge. I’ve never completed it myself, but have fished a few of the lakes in the area. It’s beautiful country.

    I assume this is a different route then what they dub "The Meanest Link" which I think has you visiting all of the park offices throughout Algonquin an extended tour of such?

    We have be thinking about paddling from Cochrane to Moosonee. Will likely be extensively researching this route over the colder months.

    I’ve done Pierre Lake to Moosonee through the Little Abitibi River diversion. Best part is by far is Pierre Lake to Fraserdale. You can then take the polar bear express back to cochrane. The run from Fraserdale to Moosonee is not memorable unless you like paddling through 400km of black spruce on a brown roiled river.

    Yes probably a different route(just in and out). It was a while back so I wouldn't remember the details, however some time with canoe map can lay the route
