For several hours it seems like at least 1 person was battling a fish and doubles were not uncommon. The most striking thing was that only 1 or 2 of the fish we caught were small; the vast majority were walleye or smallmouth bass between 16 and 20 inches.
We let most of them go, but we kept a few and stuffed ourselves with golden chunks of fried fish for dinner, which we washed down with s’mores and Koolaid. What a way to end a day in the Wilderness.
Joshie Goldstein was so excited as his dad pulled his first smallmouth bass of the day out of the water, I thought he was going to leap right out of the canoe!
This special place needs our help. Sulfide-ore copper mines are being proposed along the southern edge of the Wilderness. They threaten to pollute our nation’s most popular Wilderness.
