A few of our guests enjoy strapping one of our canoes onto the camp Lund and heading on over to Bridget Lake for a portage. Carrying the canoe about a quarter-mile from Archer Bay, they hike into the small lake that has areas 100 feet deep.

Bryant Friebus on a portage…

Bryant Friebus and his dad Dean, regulars here at Bow Narrows, really enjoy the adventure and peace of this portage. And in 2016, Dean hooked into a big 40-incher from the canoe.

…and with a big pike caught from the canoe.

When asked what appeals to them about the portages, Bryant said, “I like the whole experience and being the only one on a lake that gets no pressure from motorized boats. Reminds me of how it would have been back before motors were used on boats. Fishing from a canoe is a whole different experience that is full of serenity. Hooking into a good size fish in a little canoe really makes fighting that fish more exciting.”
