Lukas Leaf is the Executive Director of Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters and is on the board of the MN chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. This episode starts with a little discussion of what the Boundary Waters Canoe Area is, why it’s important to so many people, and what the fishing is like throughout the year. Then, we get into the current threats to the Boundary Waters, most notably a mine proposal that would enable extraction right on the edge of the Wilderness area. To end on a better note, Lukas shares some of his favorite fishing stories from the Boundary Waters.
