Atikaki region

A map showing CCR’s Manitoba regions is posted at
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/412%20 ... anoeroutes ;

Ed note: I chose the name Atikaki for the region because it is short enough to fit on the above map and is not too misleading. Of course, Atikaki Provincial Park accounts for perhaps only 10% of the area of the region; on the other hand, it sees a much larger fraction of the canoe traffic.
The more accurate Northeast Lake Winnipeg would have been too long for the purpose.
Use of the full description, namely The basin of eastern Lake Winnipeg, west of Ontario, between the Manigotagan River (excluded) and the Nelson River (excluded), was clearly out of the question.

Explicit inclusions.
Atikaki Provincial Park; Assapan River, Assinika River, Berens River, Bloodvein River, Broadleaf River, Dogskin River, Gammon River, Leyond River, McPhail River, Pigeon River, Poplar River, Rice River, Sasaginnigak River, Wallace Lake, Wanipigow River.

.

The Atikaki region consists not only of the rivers flowing directly into Lake Winnipeg, but also of a network of native Routes in the back country between the Berens and Wanipigow basins. After several failures, I decided on the following seven folders. Please note first that some Route entries may be posted in two or more folders and also that some may be misfiled.
Rivers flowing directly into Lake Winnipeg (north-to-south sort).
List of folders:
1. Poplar River.
2. Berens River.
3. Pigeon River.
4. Bloodvein River.
5. Rice River (not accessible from the others).
6. Wanipigow River.
7. Back-country (Routes mostly off the above rivers; documented largely by Réal Bérard).

Atikaki Provincial Wilderness Park. Information.
Ed note: The main body of the park adjoins Woodland Caribou Provincial Park in Ontario, but strips run downstream along the Bloodvein, Leyond and Pigeon Rivers.

Cobham River. Information.
Ed notes:
1. The Cobham River starts near Deer Lake in Ontario, enters Manitoba, passes through Elliot Lake there, returns to Ontario and enters the Severn River above Opasquia Lake.
2. Posted also in Ontario, in the Severn section of the folder Hudson Bay and James Bay north.
3. This seems to be the only reasonable Manitoba subregion in which to post the entry; the other candidate, namely the Hayes subregion of the North region, is even worse.

Folder 2. Berens

Berens River and Berens Lake. Information and Places.
Ed notes:
1. The Berens River flows from its source in Ontario to Lake Winnipeg; at its mouth lies the settlement of Berens River.
2. The river is accessible by road (from Red Lake) only at Berens Lake (the lake, in Ontario).
3. The settlement of Little Grand Rapids (at the north end of Family Lake) has both an airfield and a floatplane base.
4. Family Lake (and so Little Grand Rapids) can be accessed by canoe also from the Dogskin River or Sasaginnigak Lake, as described by Réal Bérard in both Kautunigan Route and Sasaginnigak Canoe Country; the latter map has the better scale.
5. Family Lake is the formal start of the Pigeon River.
