General Discussion / Re: Hiking Kipawa and the Kipawa river

 Hi Brad, good to see you bro. I do some short little walks around my camp. The bridge over the Red Pine Chutes is 2.4 km one way. About a 20 minute walk one way. It's good exercise. I'll sometimes keep walking past the bridge. This for me is a nice walk. Other then that there are a few atv trails that might be a good trek as well. I'm more walks then hikes, lol.

General Discussion / Hiking Kipawa and the Kipawa river
« Last post by 600 miles north on August 08, 2018, 05:21:10 PM »
     Hello all, I have been MIA from this forum for way too long. Im getting the itch for Kipawa and am planning a trip north labor day weekend.
     I kind of thought touching on a little different subject might be interesting from the perspective of being on kipawa.
     How many of you go hiking at all when at the lake?

     Some years back we decided to hike the kipawa river with kids in tote. we didn't get too far, but got some of my favorite pictures and saw some of the most beautiful sights I've seen there. I really would like to spend a day again this year on the river. Without the kids I feel like it will be much more enjoyable. I even have the itch to kayak the river, but don't have any experience on it, or know it well enough to try such a venture.
     Does anyone know if the chutes are marked clearly before you come upon them being on the river? I wouldn't want to find myself heading over them unexpectedly!
I kind of want to try the Kipawa experience from a different angle this year. I have some great memories of the many years we have been to the lake, but would like some new ones...

     Just thought a thread from a different angle than we usually talk about would be fun. Any imput on this subject would be greatly appreciated... Now I need to catch up on what I've been missing here for the last several months!

Cheers! 600 miles north is where I'd rather be!
Brad

Hey Mike. Try Pickeral Bay for Pike (lol I know)... Bronson Island is the island on the left side mid height of that screen shot- Pickeral bay is where I have the cursor. Beware when you are going into the bay- the entry is narrow and guarded by many big boulders and stumps. Take your time, and a first mate up front watching for hazards is ideal. Good luck!

MuskieMike I would go to the navionics website and look at kipawa on there website it will give you depths and bays in around your location.  The maps can be printed so atleast when you locate the spots that interest you, you can have a depth chart that can give an idea of trouble spots.

I put my cover on at night, it only takes 5 -10 minutes to snap it on. If it wasn't that easy, I probably wouldn't bother, I never did on my ranger tiller because it didn't have a snap on mooring cover.
