Portage Description:
Portage is difficult to find, hidden among the weeds. Very muddy area. Narrow trail goes uphill towards Pickerel. Very muddy area near the middle of the trail. Trail ends in a marsh. Had to push the canoe while walking on a floating carpet of weeds. Got wet up past the knees. Supposedly a side trail to a better put in, but was unable to find it.

Lake after portage: Pickerel (BW)
Known campsites: 1
Lake Description:

Lake lives up to it's name, it's full of Pike. One way in, one way out, so it's not a well visited place.
