Newt to Little Newt

Quetico portage
Posted by: Tim Atkinson
Season/Year: Summer 02
Water Level: low
Length: 30-40 rods
Rating: difficult
Additional Perspectives:

Portage Description:
Located where Newt and Little Newt are closest together. It is in a bay. There are reeds in the back of the bay (southwest part of lake). There is a trail through the reeds on the left--portage is at the end of the trail. This would get an EASY rating, except the water was so low the trail was only that quicksand type mud and we had to bushwhack around it to the portage. If the water was higher you could just float up to it.

Lake after portage: Little Newt
Known campsites: not sure
Lake Description:

Little Newt is more like a small pond. Saw small largemouth bass swimming among the lily pads.
