The Backwaters of Busse Woods Lake

Each time I paddle Busse Woods Lake I like it more and more. Lately I've been exploring the "backwaters" sections on the northwest side near Rt. 53. It is a fairly isolated part of the lake and there is a small creek that leads towards 53 although it gets too shallow to make it all the way to 53. In this section I've encountered a few beavers, thrashing fish which splashed me, and a deer and her tiny fawn that startled me as I turned a corner on the creek as they crossed right in front of me.

Time to practice my backwards stroke since it was impossible to turn my boat around.

Small isloated section of the lake in the northwest section of Busse Woods. You have to pass through a short creek-like channel to get to this part of the lake. Its only about a foot deep here and your paddle will get muddy as it hits bottom often.
