BWCA Permit Question

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know when one can begin to reserve overnight canoeing permits? I was just at the website and I couldn't find the date anywhere.

Are lottery applications only for motor permits, or do they apply for ALL permits at all entry points?

The lottery is for all permits. Since your looking for a paddle permit you shouldn't have a problem getting any entry you choose.

Did the cutback in motor permits go into effect for 2005?

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
