Fishing in the Quetico

Friends of ours took a day trip into Saganagons for some fishing.  From our place it’s fairly easy to get up there and experience some great fishing.  A 5-mile boat ride takes you up to Chippewa Inn on the Canadian Side of Saganaga to purchase fishing licenses and rent a canoe.  From there it’s about another 4-5 mile boat ride to the portage into Saganagons.  The portage is wide and well-maintained and it’s about a 2 mile hike to get to Saganagons where the canoes are stored.  From there you start paddling and fishing.  They paddled around and were able to catch a bunch of walleyes, a few smallmouth, and even a northern pike.  I can’t wait to get the time to head up there and try my luck at fishing in Saganagons.
