Moose River, Crooked Lake, Basswood Lake

(A trip into the Boundary Waters)

Starting from the Moose River entry point, north of Ely, you travel downstream through Nina Moose Lake and Agnes Lake to Lac La Croix, and then east through Iron Lake and Crooked Lake to the Basswood River. You can return to Mudro Lake via the Horse River, or to Fall Lake via Pipestone Bay of Basswood Lake. Travel distance is approximately 50 miles to Mudro Lake, and approximately 60 miles to Fall Lake. Allow five to six days of travel time to complete this route, and add on several extra days for some great fishing!
