Planning on a trip to EP37, entering on September 8. I've mad over 15 trips to the BWCA before, but this is the first to this EP. Taking my two sons who have made several trips with me before but also taking my son in law for the first time. Want to make sure he has a great first experience.
Thinking about a base camp in Malberg area with day trips. Anyone have any suggestions? Any help with the fishing in that area at that time of year? Will the smallies still be hitting topwater at that time?
Thanks in advance

Somehow I hadn't seen it. I look forward to all your reports. Thanks for the heads up

Don't overlook kawasachong on the way in/out for fishing. I was pleasantly surprised by simply trolling a jig/white twister tail.

As you'll see from other's trip reports and such, the portage out the NE side of Marburg is really pretty and a great place to cast a line.

I based camped on Malberg last September, mid-month. We got some topwater action using whopper ploppers, but our best SM were caught trolling husky jerks over submerged rock structures.

River Lake has great fishing, and a daytrip to Fishdance to see the pictographs is worth it too.
