As usual for WCPP over the past few trips, all of our pre-planning kind of went out the window as the end of July 2018 approached, thanks once again to wildfires. In 2016 my plans were thwarted by both a sprained foot and a huge wildfire, this year it was 'just' fires that cut us back to plan "B" planning. Of course, as usual, WCPP plan "B" trips are still through pristine wilderness with amazing landscapes, endless amounts of fresh Walleye, Pike and Lake Trout and moments of peaceful tranquility so it's pretty hard to complain about them. The main impacts of changing plans last minute was that we ended up with two days that were a bit small and short compared to what we could have had but more on that later.
