Portage Description:
Very steep up and down from Wink into Poobah. At the time of the portage in 2004, there were many trees down that increased the difficulty of the portage. The last several rods into Poobah were very steep and required a hand-off of gear to make the last section. Walking the portage with gear/canoe in hand was risky.

Lake after portage: Poohbah
Known campsites: not sure
Lake Description:

Poobah is a big lake with potential for Walleye, lake trout and northerns. Set aside at least four days in order to cover even half of the lake. Found the lake to be a bit more crowded in terms of people due to the fact that float plane access to the lake was possible.
