The portage may not even be necessary if water conditions in the creek are'nt too high. The Kingfisher makes for a good fishing and or swmming hole.ing hole. Otherwise, if the portage is needed, the trail is fairly nondescript. There are some fallen logs in the water on the Kingfisher end that may make getting out to the lake a little tricky.

Nice easy portage along a creek. As others have stated, keep an eye out for the portage. It is easy to paddle past it. We did.

When approaching from Ogish Lake, keep your eyes peeled to the North, the landing can sneak up on you, as it is hidden by brush/trees as you approach from the West. The current here will want to pull you along into the creek toward the lake to the East. Not so severe that you can't paddle against it to get back to the landing, but just be aware.

portage is on the north side of the creek and is easy - much easier than walking your canoes up the creek as we saw a large group attempting.
