Easy carry over portage. Excellent fishing below rapids. 6 pound walleye, 36" Northern, and 22" Small mouth caught while floating a bobber with a leech through the moving water.

One of the hardest portage of all. Rocks are so jumbled it took two people to carry the canoe. Footing is very bad. BUT ... if the water is higher a nearby smooth rock provides a very easy landing on both sides.
