Scottbr, perhaps zboss meant Perch Bay but the anchorage is at the entrance to Perch behind some islands.I cannot imagine humping a canoe(only as a nightmare!!) over that ridge.We have several times hiked over it to the Three Sisters(think tha's what they are called) and that was bad enough. One year when we were at the Pool for over a week in September ( couldn't move into an appt. until October) I came face to face with a bear on that trail ,was so close I could see the shine on its coat.Luckily it was only interested in the berries it dropped on all fours and ambled off!!
Canoeing was 25-30 years ago, much younger and stronger, and it was a Coleman canoe at 80 lbs. too.
We were in Baie Fine mid Aug. and heard a report on the VHF of a bear swimming across the Pool.
