We are heading into Jean on June 15th for eight days. Looking at the maps there is a series of 3 lakes in between the north and south arm of Quetico lake. A loop back through those lakes is an alternative to back tracking on Quetico. I've searched and came up with some older posts. I was hoping someone could provide update on portages, fishing, (smallies and northerns), campsites, etc. on those lakes.

Nothing earth-shaking to add other than my buddy and his group went in there a few years ago and it was bass haven. Can't remember if he said smallmouth or largemouth.

Those have been considered, but I haven't been into them yet. Maybe next week?

I have been into all three but not on the same trip. The one furthest west does have large mouth and pike. It's a nice little lake. I haven't done the portage to the middle lake but I have been into the west lake several times.

I have done the other two lakes from the east end. I didn't have a lot of fishing success in either of these lakes. The portage into the furthest east can be tricky depending on the beavers. You will see a pond between Quetico and the first lake. In that area it can be totally flooded. The last time I went in there I found that the portage entrance from Quetico had been moved to the south side of the pennisula to avoid the water. You may have to look around a little. The portage in the middle lake from the east was slogging along the side of the creek,

Anyway it is worth trying once.
