Pangi Lake

Weasel Lake PMA

Origination of this name is unknown. Pangi Lake lies to the south of Gull Lake. It does not appear to be connected to any other lakes through any outlets. Pangi Lake is the remnant of a larger lake that once filled in the peat bog that now surrounds it. A deeper portion of that ancient lake is visible a quarter mile or so to the southwest of Pangi Lake in the form of a circular-shaped unnamed lake.

In 1875, a fire began in the August Creek area, a notable stream that runs through this region. This fire swept along August Creek and then spread and burned the forests around Bald Eagle Lake and Clearwater Lake.




Approach to Pangi Lake

You get to Pangi most easily from the south shore of Gull Lake.  A good place to begin this bushwhack would be from the west side of a point sticking out into Gull Lake that is directly north of Pangi Lake.


Bushwhack to Pangi Lake

Pangi Lake is about a half mile from Gull Lake.  This bushwhack is not complicated, but relatively strenuous since it requires a good bit of travel through dense forest.  From a GPS point of 47.841065, -91.510685 just west of a prominent point due north of Pangi Lake on Gull Lake, head straight south through the forest for about 55 rods.  Once you come out of the forest, it is another 50 rods south across peat bog to the north shore of Pangi Lake.


Exploring Pangi Lake

Pangi Lake is relatively featureless; an open, shallow lake plopped into the middle of a peat bog.  Some forest shades the lakes southeast shoreline.  From satellite images, vegetation covers or is just below, much of the lakes surface.
