Boy River

Boy River Professional Review and Guide

"The Boy River is a quiet, slow stream that winds past unsettled forest and marsh. Begin your trip at the public access on the so-called South Bay of Inguadona Lake. The name of this long, narrow lake name comes from the Ojibwa word equademog, meaning “edge of the slope.” Follow Inguadona northward about 3 miles to the beginning of the Boy River.

Most paddlers will want to end their trip at CR 8, before reaching the windy expanses of Leech Lake. If you wish to continue downstream to the lake, take out at Blackduck Point or Sugar Point. Watch out for winds and high waves on Leech."
