Kasshabog Lake Real Estate Listings and Information
Kasshabog Lake is located 22 km (14 mi) north of Havelock in Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Township. The lake receives flow from several smaller tributary lakes. The major inflow is from the North River which is part of the Crowe Lake system. Although the lake has many islands and bays, only MacDonald (Bill’s) Bay appeared to be hydrologically separated from the main lake.
In 1978, the lake had 16 permanent residences, 504 cottages, and four cottage rental units. MacDonald Bay has 81 cottages along its shoreline.
The volume of water in MacDonald Bay flushes itself about twice during the year, while the rest of the lake flushes only about once a year.
Kasshabog Lake has soft, slightly acidic water with a moderately low amount of apparent colour. The hardness, alkalinity, and conductivity levels indicate the lake is well mixed. Thermal stratification (temperature layers) were found in almost all the bays and monitoring stations. Water clarity was moderately good throughout the lake, and the secchi disk results indicate the lake is mesotrophic, or moderately enriched.
Dissolved oxygen distribution throughout the lake showed a gradual decline with increasing depth, probably due to the decomposition of organic matter in the bottom waters. No significant accumulations of nutrients in the bottom waters was found at any of the monitoring stations.
The density and composition of the phytoplankton (microscopic water plants) indicated an “unenriched” lake condition. The density and composition of the zookplankton (microscopic animals) indicated “moderately enriched” lake conditions.
The most popular sportfish of Kasshabog lake are Largemouth Bass, Muskellunge, and Smallmouth Bass. The lake also contains Rock Bass, Perch, and Walleye (Pickerel).
There was a tornado in the summer of 2002, it was most likely anEF0 or EF1. There was tree damage and a few houses damaged.
