    Davis Lake and Salmon River

    Davis Lake and Salmon River Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "We really enjoy paddling this small lake and the Salmon River that flows into its west end. Surrounded by hills and wilderness, Macomb Reservation has a wild feel to it. We should rename it “Salmon Creek,” in keep- ing with its size and to avoid confusing it with the other North Country Salmon Rivers. Traverse small Davis Lake slowly to savor its beauty. Vegetation layers back from the water’s edge, starting with ferns or cattails and various shrubs, giving way to birch and other small trees, ending with large red pine and a few scattered white pine. Near the stream entrance, narrow-leaved cattail gives way to wooded shores. Where alder has not crowded everything else out, a fine grove of walnut grows. Look for feather-like leaves resembling ash and deeply furrowed bark on straight trunks in older trees. Habitat type: small, shallow lake; narrow, slow-flowing stream"
