Kakagi (Crow) Lake, just north of Nestor Falls and right across Highway 71 from Stevens Bay on Lake of the Woods, sits 60' higher in elevation and sends
its crystal clear water north, eventually into Regina Bay on Lake of the Woods. Kakagi is a deep, spring-fed lake with depths up to 180 feet.
It is known for its majestic pine shorelines and rock walls that jutt out of the water and tower above, well over 250'. Kakagi is approximately 28,000 acres in size, about 15 miles long and up to 7 miles wide. It boasts some of the most productive lake trout water to be found anywhere. With good spawning reefs throughout the lake and deep water basins equally well distributed, lake trout thrive troughout
the lake. Musky, smallmouth bass, northern pike and lake whitefish also inhabit Kakagi Lake, and many reach tophy size. Forage fish include
perch, rockbass, sisco, lake shiners and a variety of other minnow species.
Kakagi is a boater's dream, with its crystal clear water, fantastic rugged scenery and a wide variety of wildlife and birds. In early to
midsummer you can ofter find 50 to 100 loons festing together on the
suspended shiner minnows. This type of behavior is rarely seen elsewhere and demonstrates the lake's productivity. Almost 300 large and small islands offer lots of places to explore and
relax, and unique pebble beaches replace the sandy ones you find on Lake of the Woods.
Several small portage lakes close to Kakagi offer not only great fishing, but also opportunities to hike,view wildlife and enjoy Mother Nature.
In winter, Kakagi is the gateway to a system of lakes and portages that stretches almost 60km east of Nestor Falls by snowmobile.
