Features: Paddle down Kawishiwi river (slow/no moving) to Bald Eagle region. Make a loop thru Clear Lake to the north. Can be great fishing at times.
Problems: Couple of longer portages. Rapids can eat your canoe. You’ll also see more people as you approach on Bald Eagle/Gabbro lake area.
Solutions: Don’t be an idiot. Stay out of ALL rapids. That’s what portages and our superlight Souris River rental canoes are for. Shooting rapids is incredibly dumb when there’s a portage. Damaged canoes will cost you a bundle in repairs, replacement, and extraction. Do not leave canoes unattended and calmly floating in the water. Either hold, tie, or bring up on shore.
