Kawasachong is a smaller, shallow lake
in the upper Kawishiwi River watershed. Roughly kidney shaped with a round
bay off its northwest corner, its 129 acres have a maximum depth of only
11'. The Kawishiwi River enters Kawasachong in its southwestern quarter,
exiting to the the northwest on a long and circuitous path to Polly.
To the east a short stream runs in from long and narrow Stringer Lake.
Kawasachong supports four designated
campsites, all ranged along its eastern shore.
Kawasachong sits on the upper Kawishiwi
River route, which runs north from the river's headwaters at Kawishiwi
Lake through Square, Kawasachong, Townline,
Polly, and Koma
into Malberg. This is a popular and
heavily traveled route into the interior lakes from the Sawbill
entry. Expect to see other parties along the Kawishiwi here during the busier
summer travel periods.
Kawasachong supports populations of Northern
Pike (Esox lucius), Walleye
Rock Bass (Ambloplites rupestris),
White Sucker (Catostomus
commersoni), and Yellow Perch (Perca
