A beaver dam washout near Mulligan Lake,

6/17/08 – A beaver dam washout near Mulligan Lake, between Brule and Winchell, gave Ryan Gresback and his group a hard time traveling over Memorial Day weekend. The breaking dam released the water from a small pond, leaving it mostly mud and bog. Rough! Everywhere else, the water is high this season thanks to consistent rains. The washout only affects a very limited area of the Boundary Waters, so if you plan on paddling between Brule and Winchell, plan to go through the Cones, instead of Mulligan. – Lee
