Hi, My name is Aaron and I am from Northern
Wisconsin and I read on the net about some keewaydin canoeists who in 2002 went up hwy 599 in northwestern ontario and put in minchin lake and went into delesseps lake and miniss lake from there. I want to take my canoe and do some fishing on these lakes and I was hoping to get some help on just where to enter delesseps lake from minchin lake. Are Portages easy to see or are you on your own to find the easiest route in. Minchin lake is by hwy 599 so I was wondering where a person would leave is vehicle also. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am from douglas county about 25 miles south of superior wisc. I`ve been to the Minnesota boundary waters many times and I`ve been to canada many times fishing. However, I want to canoe in to different fly in lakes and do some beautiful canadian fishing. I guess if I don't get a response to my first post I'll have to play it by ear when i go up there in late may of 2005.

hay arron,

Last autumn fall traveled on N27 before got into
Brule on 2. Saw Black Bear feeden on road-kill
white-tail deer. Filmed him fer at least an hour.

Hav U seen tha elk herd in Clam Lake area?
That area be good wolf habitat. Found a good #
of wolf predation on deer all thru that wilderness region.

Tha Chequamegon National Forest is a site to see
in full color, but they made it a multi-use area.
A multitude of path trails cut thru tha interior.
They altered/or transformed tha silence of that forest woods.

Those lakes R SW of Pickle Lake. We wer headed in that direction last fall when that plane went down. 6 Native Indians Chiefs wer killed. Towns in that area wer distressed/grieved in mournen.
Wife & I didn't want to get in tha mix-of-it.
So we round-bout to tha NE & headed right straight into wind rains of Hurricane Isabela.

Contact Pickle Lake! They will hav info U may need. Ther was sum-1 on old forum that new that area well. I got good info from him. Ther be
woodland caribou in those NW wilds, Heya.

hay arron,

NW territory is fer sur be back-country.
Big time canoeable water-way area.
'Tis remotely wild. Hall just pick a spot
& go fer it. After 3 days in tha bush,
1's spot is as good as tha next.
When u see eagles soaren, otters playen,
beavers slappen & hear wolves howlen,
than thats tha pristine spot ya wanna be in.
Than ya no yar UP-North then, Heya!
