    • What is the Best Time to go?
      If the prime purpose of your canoe trip is fishing, consider late May, early June or September. There are fewer people during the months of May and September. Also there are fewer bugs after late July.
      BLACKFLIES: Memorial Day to the third week of June.
      MOSQUITOES: Mid-June to the later part of July. They are very easy to repel.
