Trip Introduction:
Drove ~23 hours from New York to Ely for a 10-day fishing extravaganza. Entered the park one of the first days it opened following COVID-19 related closure. (Maybe the second day it was open?) Paddled hard to reach Iron Lake on day 1, fished Peterson and the Falls before heading on to Sunday>Saturday>Friday>Basswood, Horse, etc. The weather was warm and the fishing was hot!
