Kayoskh Lake

Have not yet visited this Primitive Management Area lake. The information displayed on this page are notes used for planning a future trip to this area. Use the information on this page at your own risk.

Weasel Lake PMA

This lake derives its name from the Ojibwa word ‘gayaashk’ which means ‘gull’. Gull Lake lies just to the west. This would be ‘little’ Gull Lake then? This lake is probably the most difficult to reach in the Weasel Lake Primitive Management Area.

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 Kayoskh Lake

One could try to get here from the west end of Gull Lake as that seems the most direct.  However, coming from this direction means traveling through some rugged, rocky terrain that lies between the two lakes.  An easier route (maybe), assuming one is already at Janis Lake, would be to approach from the south end of that lake. 

Bushwhack to Kayoskh Lake

From Janis Lake, this is a straightforward bushwhack through the forest that went up in flames as a result of the 2011 Pagami Creek Fire.  It is about a half mile or 130 rods (maybe slightly less) straight south. 

Exploring Kayoskh Lake

If anyone makes it to Kayoshk Lake, they will be greeted by total devastation.  There are almost no old trees remaining and bedrock will be exposed around the perimeter of the entire lake.
