Triangle Lake Access

4 posts in this topic

Has anybody here been up to Triangle lake this year? I was wondering how the roller portage is? I heard that the rollers got a little beat up.

Thinking of bringing my kids up camping in a couple weeks.

Thanks

Nine of the rollers have been bent to the point where they will not rotate. The cause for this damage is the use of people bringing large boats with big motors, like a 18 foot Lund with a 90 horse motor. Word from those that have cabins on Ojibway this has been the worst year yet for large boat and motors on the rollers.

The rollers are mantained by some locals on Ojibway and the way they are being treated (the rollers) don't look for any repairs in the near future.

Yeah that is what I heard. Once again ignorance ruins it for others. Why would you even want to bring a boat like that across the portage? I would think that might damage the hull as well.

I am going to try and bring my 14 footer there next Saturday. I mean, are smaller boats still ok to get over?

Thanks

Matt

I used the portage last week with a 19 foot square stern and an 8 hp motor. It worked great. The rollers seemed to be in good condition to me.

If you happen to see somebody taking a boat across that they should know better than putting on the rollers get the liscense number and let somebody at the U.S. Forest Service office in Ely know about it.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
