WOW! Northern Minnesota isn't necessarily the place for light camping in mid-October typically, but we lucked out and got a 60 degree day, 50 degree night, and stroked Brookies into the evening.
Although it's catch and release from now until the season ends at the end of the month, we enjoyed catching a hungry bunch of trout and enhanced our skills while taking in the natural beauty of the Superior hiking trail. Be ready for a hike though. We came to the trail off of a logging trail. Certainly not designed by for Kia Optima, but we made it most of the way back.
It'll take you about a 1/2 mile walk through back country, picking your way through unimproved land and logging slashing. Well worth the effort this day!
After several hours of successful fishing and a couple dozen catches we went to work getting camp set up and dinner made.
The campsites were outstanding, didn't look like anyone had bothered to bring a hatchet or ax back with them for some time. Good news is we did and had plenty of firewood for the evening.
The hike out was just as awesome with temps around 45 degrees.
Couldn't have asked for a better overnight adventure!
