Folder 6. Wanipigow.

Coverage.
Broadleaf River, Wallace Lake. Wanipigow River.

Sorting of Route entries.
The Wanipigow River and its tributary the Broadleaf are paddled for their own sake, but more often to access Woodland Caribou Provincial Park (WCPP below). I have constructed four sections to hold Routes entries, as follows:
Section 1. Wanipigow River, reach downstream from Wallace Lake, including travel on the Broadleaf River.
Section 2. Travel on the Wanipiigow River, passing through Wallace Lake.
Section 3. Wanipigow River, reach upstream from Wallace Lake, portages to Obukowin Lake and Carroll Lake of WCPP.
Section 4. Wanipigow River, reach upstream from Wallace Lake, continue to WCPP.
Atikaki Provincial Park and Woodland Caribou Provincial Park.
Routes in both parks are (or will be) posted according to the start point, without cross-listing.
Specifically, Routes entering Atikaki from Woodland Caribou are (or will be) posted in Ontario’s Northwest region only, at
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=34022 ,
whereas Routes entering Woodland Caribou from Atikaki are (or will be) posted here only.
I provide first Information entries for the Broadleaf River, the Wanipigow River and Wallace Lake; then Route entries sorted into the four sections above.

Broadleaf River. Information and Features.
Ed notes:
1. The Broadleaf (access from Wallace Lake or from Birch Falls on Rte 304) connects the Wanipigow River and Aikens Lake (in the Gammon subbasin of the Bloodvein basin).
2. Broadleaf descriptions will be also found in some Gammon reports.
3. Perhaps a few of the following images are relevant.

Section 4. Wallace Lake to Woodland Caribou PP via Wanipigow River..

Crystal Lake and Broken Arrow Lake. Note.
Routes heading up the Wanipigow River past the Obukowin portages refer to Crystal Lake and Broken Arrow (I have seen also Arm) Lake. Both lakes are shown on Martin Kehoe's maps at
http://www.canoestories.com/wallace1f.htm
and elsewhere.
Toporama does not show Broken Arrow Lake at all. It does show Crystal Lake but calls it the small lake to the west of Kehoe's lake of the same name. mytopo.com shows neither lake.

Author: Réal Bérard.
Route description: Wallace Lake, Wanipigow River, Siderock Lake, Obukowin portages, Obukowin Lake, Carroll Lake (across the Gammon River), Craven Lake, Ford Lake, Artery Lake (Bloodvein River), north end of Artery Lake, (Noname Lake Route), Hobbs Lake, Dogskin River features (below), Family Lake.
Comments.
The portion from Wallace Lake to Carroll Lake is used by many parties. The next reach, to Artery Lake, is much less frequently travelled. And the reach north of Artery Lake is rarely paddled; it proceeds in a generally northerly direction, turns west, crosses into Manitoba and continues generally northwesterly to Family Lake.
This Route provides access from the Bloodvein River
first to Family Lake and so to the Pigeon and Berens Rivers, and
second (via the Noname Lake Route), to Sasaginnigak Lake and so to the Leyond, Pigeon and Berens Rivers.

South subregion.

Ed note:
By far the majority of Routes in the South subregion are not posted below, but rather
in both subregions (because they lie in both),
in Ontario’s Northwest region (where many of them start), and
in Manitoba’s Wanipipow subregion (again where many of them start).
The policy (only partially implemented) of posting Routes only in the region (or subregion) where they start was adopted partly in order to reduce cross-listing.

Inclusions.
The lower Gammon River and theTea Pail Portage.
Most of the Gammon River lies in Ontario's Northwest region
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=34022
and I refer the reader to that source for most Gammon Route entries.

Exclusions.
Atik River, Dogskin River and Dogskin Lake, Leyond River, Sasaginnigak Lake.
Routes starting from the Wanipigow basin are posted in the Wanipigow folder.
Routes starting on the Bloodvein River and remaining there.

Gammon River. Information.
Ed notes:
1. Tributary of the Bloodvein River, it near the downstream end of Stonehouse Lake (about 30 km downstream from Artery Lake).
Known access routes.
1. Red Lake, Telescope Lake, Carroll Lake (Wilson-Aykroyd).
2. Bulging Lake and Haggart River. (Wilson-Aykroyd).
3. Wallace Lake, Broadleaf River, Kosteck Lake (Bérard's Kautunigan Route)
4. Wallace Lake, Obukowin Lake, Carroll Lake. (Bérard's Sasaginnigak Canoe Country and Wilson-Aykroyd).

Gammon River. Carroll Lake to Bloodvein River. Guide.
Source: Manitoba Department of Natural Resources, Parks Branch.
Author: Réal Bérard.
Portions of the Gammon are covered in three Bérard maps.
1. The Bird – Manigotagan Waterways documents the Gammon from Carroll Lake to Aikens Lake; it provides also limited documentation on the reach from Haggart Lake to Carroll Lake.
2. Kautunigan Route documents the Gammon from Aikens Lake to the Bloodvein River; it describes the west exit from Aikens Lake (the one passing through Schykulski Lake).
3. Sasaginnigak Canoe Country documents the east exit from Aikens, but coverage of the Gammon ceases upstream from the junction with the west channel, at the Tea Trail Portage to the Bloodvein River; the continuation is however documented by Wilson-Aykroyd.
