Weasel Lake

Weasel Lake PMA

This is the namesake lake of this PMA. While you may see some variety of weasel when visiting this lake, it is more likely you will see a moose. While exploring up Weasel Creek, there was a lot of moose sign in the area. I never made it all the way to Weasel Lake. I have also seen moose on all past visits to nearby Pagami Lake, so this entire area seems to be good habitat for moose, the largest member of the deer family.

The 2011 Pagami Creek Fire burned the entire forest around Weasel Lake, except the very southern end of the lake which was protected largely by Weasel Creek. This fire began not far from here, just a half mile to the northwest, just across Pagami Creek. The fire never leapt over Weasel Creek though, only affecting the forest to its east.

In 1894 a fire affected this area. This fire started somewhere near Gabbro Lake and burned from Gabbro Lake up to Lake One, Lake Two and Lake Three.


Approach to Weasel Lake

The whole approach to Weasel Lake is along Weasel Creek.


Bushwhack to Weasel Lake

To reach Weasel Lake, begin by following Weasel Creek from its confluence with Pagami Creek.  The mouth of Weasel Creek is fairly wide and easy to spot while paddling along Pagami Creek.


Exploring Weasel Lake

The 2011 Pagami Creek Fire burned the entire shoreline of Weasel Lake, except for its south end.  There is a large prominent rock outcrop on the east shore of Weasel Lake.  Much of Weasel Lake’s shore close to the water was not impacted by the fire because the lake is surrounded by a peat bog.  This area is good moose habitat. Moose like to browse the new forest growth that sprouts after a recent forest fire.  The author of this website has seen moose signs or actual moose on visits to Weasel Creek, Pagami Creek and Pagami Lake in this area.
