      If border is closed, we need a Plan B

My party is planning on a Quetico trip at the end of August. Hopefully, Covid-19 will dissipate enough by then to allow the US/Canadian border to reopen. However, a Plan B is needed in case the border is not open.

I prefer the BWCA from the Gunflint/Seagull/Sawbill side. My question is - What is the best walleye and smallmouth lake? Two years ago, I went to the Knife Lake in late August and found good walleye fishing, but would like to try another lake this year.

Thank you.

Ogish is a really good walleye lake. So is Fraser and Sagus.

I’m in the same predicament as you! Our trip is booked for a June 5th entry. So we also have a back up BWCA permit. I have done trips out of Sawbill three times. For walleye lakes my recommendations are South and North Temperance. Burnt is decent but a busy lake. Also over on the lady chain Phoebe is supposed to be a good walleye lake. Passed through it but didn’t really have time to fish it.
