Crow Wing River-Seventh Crow Wing Lake to First Crow Wing Lake Professional Review and Guide

"The upper Crow wing scarcely resembles a river at all, but runs through a series of lakes. The lakes and short connecting streams provide good fishing.

Eleven lakes, joined by short sections of stream, form the upper Crow Wing River. The lakes are named in reverse order, from Eleventh Crow Wing Lake near the head of the drainage to First Crow Wing Lake, where the Crow Wing takes on its riverine character. The stream segments connecting the first four lakes are short and very small, providing little of interest to canoeists looking to paddle a moving stream. The stretch from Eleventh to Tenth Crow Wing Lakes is not passable."
