The two portages between Square Lake and Kawasachong lake are unnecessary, even in low water conditions of fall 2020. So between Kawasachong and Kawishiwi, you have a big pull over/1 rod portage beaver dam going just west of Kawas going to Square, and small beaver dam pullover going south of Square to Kawish. Fact.

During our August trip, the water was high enough to continue paddling through the marsh. You will need to navigate over a couple beaver dams but nothing more than a quick jump out and pull over. Beautiful forest rejuvenation area.

This portage isn't required anymore, but there are 2 other beaver dams farther upriver.

The first portage heading north out of Kawishiwi Lake offers easy landings on both sides. Enjoy the easy start to your trip!
