Thanks for the report, Dave. I made two trips into Quadga before the Pagami fire. One was a solo trip in the Island River entry, the second was a trip with my brother through the Little Isabella entry. I really liked the area and the entry through Little Isabella was nice. It's a narrow, winding stream with a remote feeling. I don't remember the portages being difficult, but there was an awkward bushwhack around a beaver dam.

I watched the Youtube video. It was very helpful in planning my May solo trip out of EP34.


Thank you
