Used to take a canoe trip every fall out of Crane Lake, Minnesota. Would canoe through the boundary waters to get to the Namakan River. Would camp and fish throughout the river. It was great fishing and truely a quiet wilderness adventure, with rarely encountering anyone. Has been 15 years since I have been there and wanted to know if anyone else has been there in the last couple of years and has it changed any since. Getting the urge to go again and did not know what to expect from it now.
