Kasshabog Lake

Kasshabog Lake (aka Kosh)

Kasshabog Lake is in the Great Lakes Basin and is home to a cottaging community, including game fishing, a marina and lodges.

Notwithstanding, many lakes in the province have an association. Kasshabog Lake in the Kawartha’s has its association.  The Lake Kasshabog Residents Association is an excellent resource for anyone visiting the area or looking to purchase waterfront property.

Kasshabog Lake has soft, slightly acidic water with a moderately low apparent colour. The hardness, alkalinity, and conductivity levels indicate the lake is well mixed. The irregularly shaped lake has dozens of islands and shoals, channels, drop-offs, weed beds and bays.

Did you know a small public beach area is a hidden gem on this lake?  There are also gravel based public launches located off of Blue Mountain Rd. 9 on the southeast side.  There is another launch at the end of Peninsula Rd., which runs along the south side of MacDonald Bay.

The surface area of Lake Kasshabog is approximately 810 hectares (2,000 acres) with a max depth is around 35m (115 feet). The lake’s average depth is approximately 4.6m (15 feet).

Surprisingly, an unknown tidbit is that Lake Kasshabog is a landlocked lake.  It has its water levels controlled by a dam.  The Crowe Valley Conservation Authority monitors the lake level and operates the dam on behalf of the MNRF.  You can learn more about the history of this dam by visiting the Lake Kasshabog Residents Association site and following to Lake Kasshabog Dam.

Primary fish species include Small and Largemouth Bass, Muskellunge, Walleye, and Rock Bass.

If you are visiting or a long-time resident, spend some time at the Petroglyph Provincial Park. This Park is where you can find indigenous rock carvings dating back over 1000 years.  Hiking trails and a visitor centre offer an overview of the area’s local history and the cultures who settled there.
