Trip Introduction:

Report


Seven guys and three canoes and entered at Lake One Friday morning. We camped on the east end of Lake Two. On the south side of the numbered lakes everything was burnt from the fire five years ago. It was not very pretty to look at but interesting to see how the area was recovering from the fire. Fishing in Lake Two and Three was pretty tough despite our best efforts. Some medium small northern, a couple big largemouth bass, and a few very small walleyes. We had a good time together and enjoyed the laughs, the campfire, and the northern lights. Shortened our trip by a day due to forecasted continuous rain.
