Number of Days:
It was beautiful week with no rain at all. We tried to find a camp site on the east side of the lake by the main islands but were disappointed in what we found. Not much room for 3 tents and even poorer prospects for hanging food packs. We ended up at camp site 1002 which turned out to be very nice spot. Actually all the sites on the west ended looked to be better for larger parties, and less used.
Fishing was okay with enough walleyes for 3 night’s dinners. We found them in the shallows near weed lines this year. Caught and released a nice 6 lb. northern caught in the middle of the west end.
Also checked out the portage to Isabella Lake, but it was clearly not used much. Saw a few moose and wolf tracks in the mud, but that was as close as we got to actually seeing any.
It was a nice lake for an easy trip and the fishing was pretty good too. Few people were on the lake the week we were out.
