Lynx Lake to MacKay Lake

About this Canoe Route

Lynx Lake to MacKay Lake

Options are as plenty as the fish on this Lynx Lake to McKay Lake route! Southerly options are to explore Wadin Bay or meander to Jepson-Sutherland-Bulbick off Sulphide Lake. From Sulphide Lake you can head easterly to Caribou-Freda-Sim, then southwesterly from Freestone-Hebden to get to Contact Lake. Or you can take a northerly route from Sulphide to Contact through Mekewap Lake. After Baldhead & Cote Lake, explore Mackay Lake nooks before your take-out. Pick the route that suits your fancy.

Sheltered, small lakes make this a great learning area for those without a bevvy of experience with northern Saskatchewan canoe tripping. Portages, varied in length & features, give you a taste of what those who traveled these ancient routes experienced in days of old.

Montreal River Outpost offers the convenience of a shuttle for your Lynx Lake put-in and Mackay Lake take-out. A short trip with lasting memories!
