Weaver River, starting at Roundish Lake and heading South.

I am planning a 10 day trip in August 2010. Our plans are to start by Roundish Lake and head south to the Weaver river and follow it to the Churchill and Otter Rapids. I cannot find any information on this route except in Northern Saskatchewan Canoe Country by Karpan.

Is there a way thru from Roundish lake? Can you drive to Roundish Lake? Can the guides at Bear Camp help? Are there portage routes or will we be bushwhacking?

Email montanatrail@gmail.com if you can help.

Hello Montanatrail,
Great to see you here at CCR, I've been enjoying your route mapping efforts for some time now.

I would suggest you check with Mark Lafontaine in Saskatoon. He is planning on leading a group there this spring. Mark's web site is http://www.wildpaddler.ca/

Also, I would suggest contacting Robin & Arlene Karpan and talk to them in person. They may be able to point you toward more resources. http://www.parklandpublishing.com/contact.htm

Cheers,
Bryan

I think Ric Driedeger would have some information on this route:

http://www.churchillrivercanoe.com/forms/contact_us.htm

I talked to him about it several years ago. If I recall correctly, Roundish Lake was reached by portage from the road. I went elsewhere for my trip because he described the first part of the route down from Roundish as lacking in good campsites.

Glad to see that Mark's site is back up.
But are those trip reports there? I couldn't find them.

Hi Allan,
Mark's domain name is back, but the rest of the old site including those small river trip reports that exist nowhere else, is still in storage. On the plus side, I am pretty sure he still has the reports so once he gets some time I expect they'll be back.
Cheers,
Bryan
