Tuesday, July 08, 2008 We woke up early that morning and went up to Ely to get the briefing on the Bwca at the Dnr station. we entered the lake at entry point and travailed up the river. it was not more then 1 hour when me and my canoe partner stoped to let everyone catch up when I caught my first smallmouth bass of the trip. by the time we got to are first portage we had 2 smalles. the portage of 122 rods in to little gabbro. we ate lunch at a camp site just off the portage. well every body was eating lunch me and my Brother were fishing the rapids for some fish and we nailed them it was a lot of fun. we camped at 1711 site. witch is a nice site. we went back after seting up camp and taking a quick swim to fish the rapids that we just went through for walleyes we did not caught any then I learned we were fishing them wrong. But we ate fish for supper.
