Portage Description:
I feel foolish rating this difficult, but the difficulty arises from the lousy take out point. There isn't one. It's merely a very large beaver dam which needs to be scaled. But with a cliff on one side and a dense thicket on the other there's really no approaching the dam. But 3 lousy rods were not going to discourage phlegm and Mrs. phlegm from our visions of fishing nirvana. After all, the lake had to be named Treasure for the treasure trove of angling possibilities on the other side of that wall, didn't it?

Lake after portage: Treasure
Known campsites: None at all
Lake Description:

Pretty, but rather nondescript. A family of loons kept us entertained, or possibly vice versa as they watched us fish these barren waters.
