Thanks for sharing that billsta. Sounds like you had pretty good fishing and a minimum of problems. I've seen the Moose River area both crowded and deserted. I guess you never know what to expect, eh?

Nice trip report, billsta. I enjoyed seeing pictures of my old paddling grounds. I'll have to get back there one of these days.

Nice report. LLC is probably my favorite area of the BWCA. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, it was a great trip with good fishing. The trip didn't feel crowded until our last day on the way out. We actually had Boulder Bay to ourselves for two full days and saw only one other group in 3 days fishing on the Boulder River.
I understand the popularity of this EP, what with great fishing, beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, lots of options for routes, etc.

Nice report! Thanks for taking the time to share your story & photos. I really liked the way you summarized things at the end of each day.


Looked like you had an very eager little look out at the front of your canoe? :) Hope that turtle didn't get her? ;-}
