Paddling out from the boat access maintained by the town of Danforth, you will see numerous exposed stumps and rocks on the upper part of Crooked Brook Flowage. This section, which is long and narrow, also funnels wind. When the wind blows strongly out of the north or south, this area can have deep swells and whitecaps. The western shore near the north end of the lake has several unobtrusive houses on the bluff above. They soon disappear from view, and there is hardly any more evidence of human presence until you get to the far end of the southeast arm. Deciduous trees predominate here, with occasional hemlocks and pines thrown in. Aspen, paper birch, red maple, and alder grow throughout. Prominent fish species: smallmouth bass, white perch, and chain pickerel.
