Sorry for the late response. Just got back from Namakan and the ticks were worse. Doesn't help that I travel solo with two dogs. Permethrin helps. On the Kawishiwi I believe we picked up most ticks on the portage to Pickerel. My dogs both have Lymes and get yearly boosters. Unfortunately I picked up Lymes while on Kabetogama two years ago. Antibiotics took care of it for now. NIce you can swim when the water is warm to do tick checks. Early May the water was a little cold.
Where were you on the Kawishiwi River? Were the ticks everywhere or only in certain locations?
