April 18, 2018: Ice Out Report from early season canoeists
#14 Little Indian Sioux North and the Portage River
Open water can’t get here soon enough. We decided to go check out the Little Indian Sioux River. The river south of the Echo Trail was still frozen, but we had some luck heading north. We made it all the way to Upper Pauness. We couldn’t quite get to Lower Pauness, but I bet in a day or two you could. The portage trails are snow covered and icy in spots. Portaging was a little sketchy, but we took our time and made sure we had good footing.
