North Kawishiwi River to Pickerel (BW)
|Boundary Waters portage|
Posted by: Jim DeVries
Season/Year: Summer 00
Water Level: high
Length: 80 rods
Portage is difficult to find, hidden among the weeds. Very muddy area. Narrow trail goes uphill towards Pickerel. Very muddy area near the middle of the trail. Trail ends in a marsh. Had to push the canoe while walking on a floating carpet of weeds. Got wet up past the knees. Supposedly a side trail to a better put in, but was unable to find it.
Lake after portage: Pickerel (BW)
Known campsites: 1
Lake lives up to it's name, it's full of Pike. One way in, one way out, so it's not a well visited place.
