Cookern Trip went well! It is a tough one, but the scenery is awesome and we had great weather.

Cookern Awesome, thanks Salty. Were taking all the stuff you recommended. Although trimming gear and running light is sometimes a problem for me. Leaving bright and early from Tulabi Thursday morning, hoping all the long weekenders will be done and get a jump on those heading out for the next weekend.

SaltyMinnow Also leave early, if you're going out for the long weekend, chances are a lot of the campsites might be taken..

SaltyMinnow A group of us went a few weeks back.

The trip itself is a really nice scenic one, but be prepared, it is not a short one.
Took us about 5 hours paddling and portaging. (We went to Elbow, but not the first campsite)

Also, portage 1 and 2 are loooong so pack light, and also uphill in some spots.

Some tips I would have would be:
-Good waterproof or watershoes for launching canoes/kayaks
-Water filter system (bringing out a case of water is not recommended as its heavy and you'll have to bring back a case of empty bottles)
-Good bug spray (Flies were terrible, ate my legs up)
-Bring some dehydrated meals (light and don't take up much room)
-Tarps (in case it rains)
-First Aid Kit (self explanatory)

All-in-all pack light, but pack a little extra in case you're stuck out there an extra day or two.

Feel free to PM if you have any extra questions.

Cookern My brothers and I are planning a trip in to Elbow in Early July.

Anyone been there since the last post in here in 2017.

Stories, advice and techniques are all welcome!

Daysoff Reporting back.

First time into elbow and McGregor and it was awesome.

Caught 4 species, walleye, perch, smathmouth and pike. Lots of pike.

Could have ate fish each night but had our own so one was a fish night.

Still say Manitoba is the best Province dam we have some awesome scenery!

Daysoff Realize I am pulling one out of the mothballs but a bit of an update. Wife chaperoned a school canoe trip into Elbow this weekend. The went in Weds of this week and home today. They saw one other group the entire time.

She was the only one fishing and all from shore. Plenty of mid to larger pike and the odd walleye caught on some old cranks and jig and a swim baits.

Re: Elbow Lake?

The portage into McGregor was totally blown when we went May long. I guess we were the first one's through. Took my buddy and couple of hours to get through...thankfully we brought saws! McGregor to Snowshoe was blown in too, but not nearly as bad... flooded as usual though. The fishing in Snowshoe was amazing and well worth the effort.

Re: Elbow Lake?

Was up there in May. Well, the start of Elbow anyways, ran into ice that prevented us from getting to McGregor. Anyways, the portages have been redone, some nice new stairs on Portage #1 and #2, and new paths cut to avoid the mud. However all the work that the volunteers did last year to do this was overshadowed a bit by mother nature and the after effects of last falls wind storm. Whole bunch of trees down, couple big ones crossing the paths. Other than that, as always, a beautiful paddle.
