Trip Introduction:
Nothing like sitting under the stars on Oyster Lake.
We love going to Oyster Lake but this last time was the hardest trip out of the 6 times we been there. The beaver dams were everywhere and were so big they stopped the water and made it very hard to canoe.Smally fishing on Oyster is awesome and the camp sites on the pennisula are great. Weve seen alot of moose pass thru. If anyone has any updated knowledge of the beaver dams between Nina Moose Lake and Agnes that would be great.Does anyone know if they open the water ways after the beavers make huge dams? Hope to go back June of 2013. EEEEccccchhhho Traaaaiiil
