Took a trip in late August to this Conservation Reserve near Bala Ontario. We parked at the Nine Mile Lake Marina and paddled down the Upper portion of the Gibson River into Woodland Lake and then Brotherson's lake where we camped for the night. We returned via easy portages to Turtle Lake and back to Nine Mile Lake. The Upper Gibson is very shallow and narrow in parts with rougher portages than the rest of the route. The unexpected rain seemed to keep away everyone and we didn't see any canoeists just cottagers on Nine Mile. I think we only had about 3 hours of sunshine the entire trip! Still was pretty cool. Turtle lake looked really cool and probably has good fishing, had a heavy downpour and just wanted to get to the car at that point so we didn't stick around. Great area and great trip. I hope to get back there and explore more!
