I loved reading about your solo and you took wonderful pictures. The reason I wear boots...my ankles!

Nice report! Next time you're up there and not in a hurry, take the NE portage out of Malberg and go down the river. Extra portage vs the muddy wet single you did but very cool scenery and rapids

Nice pictures!


I also appreciated the screen caps with arrows.


Thanks for posting. Makes me want to get to Fishdance Lake.

That is the best eagle pic I ever seen shared on this site. I also love your gear shot.

I will paddle eternal, Kevlar and carbon.

I enjoyed your trip report very much and also appreciated the photos.


We were on the Gunflint Trail in a cabin the same week that you were out, but we didn’t have any stormy weather on Sunday. Actually we didn’t have any stormy weather at all that week,b it it was very cold and frosty on Tuesday morning the 8th, and windy on Thursday. Thankful for not having bad storms where we were.


I totally agree with you that you need 10 days to really enjoy a BWCA trip. 12-13 is even better.


Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

I'm aiming to do my first solo next year, so thankful for people like you that share their experiences. Very much appreciated the level of detail in your report!

Great trip report, sounds like you had a great time. A buddy and i did the exact same trip in July back several years and stayed at all the same campsites as you did. They were all good but we loved the River Lake island site. Had our best ever night of walleye fishing on the point just south of there with 35 eyes in about 45 minutes. Checked out Amber Lake and the campsite there but did not make it to Fishdance. Great site on Polly too. Cool to see a different perspective of a trip very similar to ours. Here is my report:

Thanks for the nice report. I really enjoyed the Malberg area and hope to get back there sometime. enjoyed the pictures and the report and happy you had a good time. I like the sandy beaches, but that campsite has way too much sand. I would think sand would get in everything! HOpe you have many more great trips.

I am late to the party on this TR - great one! I exited from my solo on the day you entered, and like you was only there because of the border closure; had been planning a solo to Wabakimi or WCPP.


Will have to check out that part of the BWCA - looks well worth it.
