Saturday, July 28, 2012 Put in on Fall Lake #24 from The Canadian Border Outfitter. Traveled a short distance down Mile Island to the start of the Four Mile portage. 3/4 mile up the portage we encountered a stream due to recent beaver activity. To our advantage we paddled through the swampy area to Mud Lake. The Mosquitos were unforgiving on this portage. From Mud Lake to Ella Hall we took the 85 rod portage. Ella offered great campsites and the fishing wasn't bad either. One should be aware of the snapping turtles before placing the catch of the day on a stringer. Plenty of room for three tent sites and a few hammocks.
First nite super: Salmon hobo burgers, red potatoes, onion, carrots in foil wrap inserted into hot coals.
