I just wanted ot let all of the other warm water fly fishers know about the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Northern Minnesota. I have been fishing this area for over 25 years and about 6 or 7 years ago got into chasing the bass and northerns on the fly rod. We went into a small lake that took us less than 2 hours to get into via a couple of short portages. In 3 days of fishing, we caught over 2 dozen smallies between 18" and 20" as well as some of the biggest sunfish I have ever seen! We didn't target the northerns on this trip, but I know of many northerns caught in the 37" range on this lake! So, if you are looking for a true wilderness fishing adventure with the chance of catching some trophy fish, give the BWCA some consideration. There are many outfitters in the area that can set you up and even a couple that have some expertise in the area of fly fishing.
