My second trip to the Koma area. First trip this early in May. First trip for Brian and Scott.
Day 1 of 7
Saturday, May 17, 2008 Arrived at Sawbill around 5:30am after an all night drive from Cedar Rapids. Scott decides to sleep awhile in the cab while Brian and I fish for a bit until Sawbill opens up. By 9:00am we have our permits in hand and three canoes in tow heading over to Kawishiwi lake. I have been watching the wind all morning and estimate it to be blowing 20-25 mph from the North. I already suspect that Kawishiwi will be to rough for the two rookies to cut their teeth on. Once we arrive at Kawish my suspicions are proven, white cap city, we are all very tired and decide to wait a day before heading in. We spend the rest of the day fishing, sleeping and getting our gear organized.
