Sturgeon-Weir River Pelican Narrows to Maligne Lake

About this Canoe Route

Sturgeon-Weir River Pelican Narrows to Maligne Lake

Experience a variety of land and water on this short trip in the area between the Churchill River and the Saskatchewan River.

Shortly after your put-in at Pelican Narrows you get to experience the fast water of Opawikusehikan (Fear) Narrows before you gaze at the vastness of Mirond Lake. The small islands that do exist on Mirond Lake are near the western and eastern shore. The southern portion of Mirond Lake does have a few bays that you have the option to explore.

Corneille Rapids marks the transition into the lake that bears the same name. Like Mirond, there are several bays on the southern portion of Corneille Lake. The Sturgeon-Weir River narrows at Dog Rapids in the northern part of the lake. The narrow river with intermittent small lakes gives this trip breadth.

The takeout is at Leaf Rapids Provincial Campground at Maligne Lake on Highway 106.

A short trip and a gooder!
