We include this section not so much for Big Lake but for the several marshy streams that flow into the lake. Big Lake, though huge at over 10,000 acres, seems much smaller because of the large number of islands that populate its waters. We would stick to the lake’s west end near the access, which suffers least from winds. When winds blow from the northwest, you should be able to paddle down the west shore and into the feeder streams. FISH: salmon, smallmouth bass, white perch, chain pickerel.
