The Kagiano River is a river in the east part of Thunder Bay District in northwestern Ontario, Canada. It is in the Great Lakes Basin and flows from Devork Lake, 42 kilometres (26 mi) south of the community of Longlac on Ontario Highway 11, to the Pic River 55 kilometres (34 mi) north northeast of the town of Marathon on Ontario Highway 17.

Course

The river begins at Devork Lake. It flows south, takes in the left tributary Deerskull Creek at Neotoma Lake and enters at the south end of Kagiano Lake. There, it takes in the right tributary Gentian Creek and left tributaries Palmquist Creek and Wort Creek. The river heads east out of the lake at the northeast end and controlled by a dam, takes in the right tributary Buhl Creek, then turns south. It takes in the left tributary Marmota Creek, reaches Solann Lake, turns east, and takes in the left tributary Pistol Creek. The river heads over Cedar Falls and Twin Falls, takes in the left tributary Fakeloo Creek and reaches its mouth at the Pic River. The Pic River flows to Lake Superior.
