Trip Introduction:
Late September trip to catch the open window for lake trout and grouse.
Day 1 of 5
Thursday, September 18, 2014 Late season hours at the Tuscarora Lodge scuttled our plans for a sunrise start. With permit in hand we finally hit the waters of Round Lake at about 7am. From there we attacked what was to be our longest portage (428rods) on the west side of Missing Link Lake over to Tuscarora Lake. From there we navigated our way across Owl Lake, Crooked Lake, Tarry Lake, Mora Lake, into Little Saganaga Lake. Low on energy we pulled over to campsite 537 for lunch. From there it was a straight 2 mile paddle to our planned stay at campsite 812.
