This painting is based on an earlier illustration Remington did in 1891 called: "Big Fishing-Indians Hauling Nets on Lake Nepigon.' Lake Nipigon is a very large lake to the north of Lake Superior. Remington developed the scene as an oil painting in full color; replacing the original sloop with a birch bark canoe. Remington left no indication of the intended setting of this painting, but his widow referred to it as a Chippewa Bay painting. (Chippewa Bay is where the Remingtons had their summer home.)
