My wife and I went on this trip summer 2002. We would recomend starting the trip at Wadin Bay as canoeing on La Ronge is not our bag. As you can see there is many portages, so we got very good at loading/ unloading the canoe. We fould a couple more beaver dams than the notes said. Fishing was OK, better at Robertson Falls where you can camp. As we Started in Wadin bay, extra time can be spent on Otter Lake (many great camping Islands there). Make sure you can use a map and compass on Otter Lake. notes on route at www.lights.com/waterways/route02.htm enjoy!
