Trip Introduction:
Was told by a friend that was a an easy trip, one permit per day, and good fishing. We usually go through Nina Moose and Agnus, to Boulder Bay but wanted something a little less strenuous this year. Everything we were looking for. Weather was OK, drizzly rain the first two days, got nice and a great rest of the week. No bugs to speak of and walleye and small mouth bass was excellent. Will go back again for a relaxing trip.
