Boundary Waters Quetico Forum :: Trip Planning Forum :: Angleworm (EP 20) to Crooked
Options split once we make it to the Gull/Gun lake area. Head East and take the typical route up through Wagosh into Friday bay OR west and follow the Beartrap river up into Sunday Bay. My curiosity has me seriously thinking taking Beartrap but having never been there and likely low water conditions it could make for a giant mistake. Anyone with any experience?
And most importantly, how's the fishing been on Crooked? Seen plenty of people mentioning it but not many people with reports! (hopefully thats a good sign)
FWIW, there will be two of us, we'll be single portaging, and plan on getting to Crooked on the date of our entry.
Did not do the second leg, from Sunday to Iron, so can't speak to that.
Now, you say "Beartrap River up to Sunday Bay"...
There was an old portage from Sunday Lake straight up to Sunday Bay on Crooked, but by all reports that has been 100% reclaimed by the forest and does not exist. You have to take the Beartrap up to Peterson Bay on Iron...then portage east to Crooked at Curtain Falls.
Angleworm itself is a beast in terms of length, but is in no way technical. Single or 1.5 it if you can!
