Upstream from the Banning Lake you'll travel through a short channel know as Chub Narrows that offers more great fishing. Watch out for all the rocks once you're east of the Sunshine Road Bridge that passes over Chub Narrows!
Chub is a smaller lake but has some great walleye and bass holes, as well as one bay where this camp owner has done particularly well with big pike.
Further upstream you'll choose between the north & south channels through Perch Narrows. We recommend the south, taking what is known as "the 'S' curve" - the north is very rocky and should only be used by very experienced Seine Chain anglers - preferably with an electric trolling motor.
There is great walleye & smallmouth fishing throughout Perch Narrows - all around the islands - but again - watch for the many rocks.
Once you're almost through Perch Narrows head under the railroad tressel into Little McCauley Lake - the system's smallest lake - for some great pike action.
Heading back into Perch Narrows, continue downstream into Perch Lake - the second largest lake on the chain.
Like Calm, Perch Lake has great fishing for all species - perhaps one of the most interesting spots is the mouth of Tracey Rapids where the water pounds into the Seine Chain from legendary upstream waters such as the Floodwaters & Lac Des Milles Lacs. Casting into some of Tracey's water swells in the early season can be a very rewarding endeavor.
While you're there check out the mouth of the Eye River - some groups love to cast for pike in that bay.
