Portage Description:
The portage choices from Crooked to Argo are plentiful. The easiest yet longest is the 160 rod portage directly through to the southern-most part of Argo. The next easiest is through the Roland Finger Lakes. This route is very scenic, as well as protected from the westerly wind gusts. The portages are fairly simple to locate as each of them are at the end of the lakes located in a V dip shape through the trees and relatively short.

Lake Description:

These finger lakes are very clear in comparison to the tannin taint of Crooked. The fishing is fair to excellent. I have seen pike, smallmouth, and walleye pulled from these lakes. Once into Argo from Roland be ready for superb small mouth fishing in the first bay leading into the Siobhan River.
