The minnesota-ontario boundary from lake of the woods east to the pigeon river is composed of a series of lakes,the boundary line running through their center as well as through the small streams that connect them.This chain of waters makes possible some of the finest canoe trips in the north with a variety of fish species to catch.Some of the best lakes on this waterway are,lac la croix-crooked lake-basswood lake-saganoga lake-gunflint lake-mountain lake-moose lake-fowl lakes.

      If anyone is wanting to catch great Walleyes, they should go to Lake of the Woods! It is right up the road after spending some time at Leech Lake!
