Portage Description:
This portage is about double the 5 rods listed on my Fisher map. The take-out is a little steep but not too difficult to negotiate. About 5 rods into the portage, the trail heads through some swampy ground. There are a couple tricky spots where the footing is poor just before you put the canoe in above the beaver dam.

Lake after portage: Carl
Known campsites: 1
Lake Description:

Carl Lake is 59 acres and 22 feet deep. The water is tannin-stained like the other lakes in this area and it holds good numbers of 1-4 pound northerns. The campsite on this lake is a bit too close to swampy ground for my taste, but otherwise looks reasonable.
