We tried to put in on the Moose River South from the small road to the left just before the parking lot for the Moose River North. We had to lower the boats off a rock face (not a great put-in!)before making our way south. Our progress was stopped about a half-mile in due to a long dry rapids with no portage trail on either side. One of our paddlers came away with numerous ticks on her sleeves for her foray into the bush. We ended up retreating and shuttling to the Moose River South entry point, but I think we could have gone in at Echo Trail.
We saw no moose, but did see a couple of young lone wolves next to our cabin and on the road.
Thanks to those of you who encouraged the trips south on the Portage and Little Indian Sioux Rivers. They were very scenic and enjoyable and we had plenty of time to fish this year.
