A buudy of mine poled up the North Renous from the PlasterRock-Renous Highway once upon a time and got into Fowler Lake that way. There's a portage on the northeast corner that will take you into the Kennedys.
There's also a beaver-dammed-up road that can get you in there before you get to the bridge over the river.
If you can, Kyle, check out the outlet that leads over to the North Renous. I think there's an old log-driving dam there. I've always wondered if it's big enough and not too steep to get down to the main branch of the North Renous.
I'd come, but my wife is getting over a knee operation. Looking forward to a report.
well, i learned where the put in is, that took some time in itself. it is a nice place and definately remote, the portages are a little hard to find. i wrote some notes on a journal and marked the portages on a map, i plan on doing up a trip report and map to go with it. one downside was the lack of campsites. there was 2 on the main lake , one was small but level and adequate the other was unlevel and crappy.the only other decent spot was at the end of the portage trail at the last lake, this was where i spent the night. i made a thorough search over the whole area and didn't find any other suitable sites. the whole area is either very soggy or extemly rocky. the main lake is deep and has nice views, the other lakes are very shallow for the most part with a thick bed of sediment. there is no direct access by vehicle into these lakes. after a roughly 2 km drive there is a carry into the first lake of approx. 3 to 5oo m. will post more when i do up a better report.
all i have for a map is one of the topographical sectional maps from snb. i just cut out the part i needed and marked off any useful information like portages. i tried to scan and post it but it didn't go so well. i can make a copy if you would like one.
