The roar of the rapids can be heard from well down Shelley Lake. We took the shorter portage instead of Have a Smoke. This is a spectacular area. The portage is no problem.
Lake after portage: Keats
Known campsites: 2
Camped on first point west of the two portages. My brother and I agreed this was our favorite spot of any in the entire Quetico/BWCA. The smallmouth fishing in the rapids on Have a Smoke Portage was like nothing we had experienced before. We both wished we could talk to whoever it was who named these two lakes after the British poets.
