September in the BWCA

What a beautiful start to September we have had.  I can’t remember a September that has started out so wonderful for paddling the Boundary Waters.  The temperatures have been in the high 60’s and 70’s and on Saturday the high was up into the 80’s.  It has been sunny and warm and perfect for camping in the canoe country.  Our guests have been enjoying the unseasonably warm weather and are still swimming in the lakes.  Fishing has been good for all species; the Smallmouth are still very active and the Lake Trout are getting ready to spawn.  The forecast for the next couple of days looks dry and warm, more perfect paddling for September.
