Wabana/Trout lake chain?

4 posts in this topic

My wife and I are headed out there tomorrow after whatever bites and I'm wondering if the channels in between Wabana and Big Trout are navigable? I've got a 15' w/ a 25hp, which I've never had trouble with, but last August, it was getting shallow!

Thanks,

Brian

boy brian, every thing seems to be coming up very nicely with all the freakin rain we have had.

you could allways land on the north end of trout, but it is much nicer being able to access all four lakes by way of water.

I was told the smallies are hitting very nicely on wabana now.

I have fond memories of big trout too.

we used to hang out at the joyce estate quite often in the summer. took sauna's in the hot house and had fires in the fireplace of the main lodge.

got a tour by someone who lived on the lake all his life.

he told us most every thing there was to know about the joyce estate.

lot of history there.

We're out there at least once a month in the summer, it's just neat out there. I think this fall the wife and I are gonna do a tent trip out there for a few days, do some hiking, exploring, and maybe just a little fishing! That tour and the experiences you had there are just too cool. What an awesome area, that I think alot of people don't know about, which is good!!! Ever try for 'eyes on Big Trout?

The lmb and 'gills were very cooperative, lots of fun!!! No crappies or 'eyes to speak of, but we didn't try real hard for them as we were having fun with the gills and lmb's. No problem getting in between the lakes through the channels.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
