8/7 to 8/13. The Graham road is in good for the first 50k and then got really rough, couldn't go over 30 mph.
Weather was very warm, 1 morning thunderstorm and 1 day of on and off rain, temperature stayed above 60 at night.
Did an easy trip because 2 of the group were receoveing from minor strokes.
Fishing was good as always, had many walleye dinners and the biggest northern was 42"(105 cm). Had fresh blueberry pancakes every morning.
The campsites we used were very pleasant, whoever brought in the materials did a good job, the womem in our group appreciated the privies.
What I can't understand is why people can't pack out what they brought in, like chairs that get broken, beer cans and other trash, we packed our trash out.

Contact the MNR about this. We see a lot of garbage too and bag it and take it out by plane in Wabakimi. What we do not take out is all the leaking gas cans and propane tanks left on shore lunch island spots. We just document their location and report them.
