Camping on Snowbank

4 posts in this topic

A small group of us are planning to fish Snowbank over a long weekend in June. Our plan is to camp on one of the designated island sites. Do we need a BWCA permit to camp if the site is outside that 25 hp line? I could be mistaken, but I thought that the hp line was also the BWCAW line. We thought about just booking some rooms at Smitty's, but it would be nice to camp & throw lighted bobbers out from shore after the boats are tied up for the night.

Thanks

BWCA camping permits are needed inside the BWCA, outside permits are not regulated and are on a first come, first serve basis. The 25 HP line is supposed to be the BWCA line and should not need BWCA permits if outside of it.

Clarification on my last post. There are no outside permits on campsites. First come, first serve.

Thanks for the input. There are some great campsites on this lake. We can't wait to get into the fish again. Great body of water.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
