Fishing in the Boundary Waters and Quetico


Quetico and the Boundary Waters Fishing
@ Darrel Brauer

Huge Northern PikeGetting Started:
The following discussion is intended to be a beginner's guide to fishing the BWCA and Quetico area lakes and rivers. Anyone who does not fish on a regular basis but wants to take advantage of the tremendous angling opportunities available during a wilderness canoe trip will find it useful. Please understand that there are as many ways to catch fish as there are fishermen, especially in the Boundary Waters & Quetico where fish are often eager to bite. The canoe fishing equipment and techniques outlined below emphasize simplicity and ease of use for the beginner or occasional fishermen. My hope is that veteran fisherman may also find a few of my ideas useful.

Please fish responsibly within the rules of the parks, keeping only what you will eat and releasing the rest carefully so they can fight another day.
