Square is a small, shallow lake, roughly
square in form, on the upper Kawishiwi River. Only half a mile across, its
129 acres do not exceed 7' in depth. The river enters in the southeast corner
of the lake, draining out to the northeast towards Kawasachong.
In the northwest corner, a 69 rod portage drops into Baskatong.
Square has two designated campsites,
both on the southeastern shore.
Square 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.
Square supports populations of Northern
Pike (Esox lucius), Rock
Bass (Ambloplites rupestris),
vitreum), White Sucker (Catostomus
commersoni), and Yellow Perch (Perca
flavescens). Walleye are fairly abundant, the population maintained
through natural reproduction. Northern Pike are common in Square, though
Notes and Comments
The route in and out of Square is river travel
through broad boglands. Look for Blue Flag (Iris
versicolor) in bloom at the waterside.
