It was a struggle for a lifetime fisherman to not bring the gear but I survived. Next time I will fish.

Excellent report! Cherokee is a beauty of a lake!


A buddy of mine just got back and said the bugs were non-existant. He too saw moose so that is a very good sign for the moose population in the BW.


Thanks for bringing us along!


10 more days until my trip starts!

Great report. I did not even notice you didn't fish until you said something at the end. Each trip can have different goals.

Nice report. The moose alone would have made for a great trip.

Very enjoyable! Great moose. Kind of surprising you got a hole in your canoe, because while they aren't indestructible they are pretty tough (I've been rough on mine) and can usually take the rocks in flat water. I don't bring a repair kit other than duct tape, but maybe I should.

Great report! I, too, love that route. I've stayed on many of the campsites you did. The island site on Cherokee is a gem and the one on Sawbill has fantastic sunsets.


Thanks.
