Access to Put-In Information: 

Drive up highway 527 to near Armstrong, ON.  The pull off to Bukmiga Lake is not signed and can be hard to find.  I used Mattice Lake Outfitters to shuttle me in and out.

Special Comments: 

This was a near loop, with the put-in and take-out only several kilometers away from one another.  You could do this as a loop if you don't mind hiking down 527 a bit to your vehicle.
