Trip Route: N. Kawishiwi River to Bald Eagle

Entry Point:  N. Kawishiwi (29) Ojibway access

Trip Length: 3 Days

Apex: Bald Eagle area

Exit:  Ojibway Landing

Level:  Moderate

Pace:  6 – 8 miles per day (land & sea combined)

Scenery:  Beautiful – Copper Nickel country, granite and other sulfide bearing rocks all over. jackpine and swamps

Busy Times: Last week of July – First week of August

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.
