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.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
