Boy River Kayak/canoe

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever had their canoe or kayak down Boy River? I am thinking about putting in at Boy lake (or at hwy 200) and going though Inguadona into Rice and getting out on the Sioux Camp Road. I have paddled plenty around Rice and the surrounding area swamps so I know I can get though in spring. How is it from Boy Lake to Inguadona?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Jake

You may want to contact the US Forest Service in Walker

for information on distance and if you can navigate it.

The YMCA campers do it all the time from Cooper lake to the 200 bridge I believe, 200 north also should be a piece of cake. Nice stretch of scenery to be had, good bass fishing along the way, the weeds get a little thick mid summer, so earlier is better. Enjoy!

Sound good! I have always wanted to get to Cooper Lake but the water gets a little too low for my bass boat. My kayak will join me on my next warm weather trip.

Inguadona to Boy is a nice canoe trip. Takes around 3 1/2 to 4 hours (if you put in on the North end of Inguadona). You can get out at 200 or North of 200 on the Tobique road. I have never gone on through to Boy, but it's really close. The current for the most part is not real strong so be prepared to do more than just steer.

I wouldn't suggest putting in on 200 and going to Inguadona though. Against the current would most likely take you a few days. Going up the rapids would be especially difficult.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
