Buckshot Lake is located near the NW corner of the Mississippi River watershed.
The reading site is a relative still area of the lake since the inlet for this uncontrolled lake is at the north-west & outlet at the south-west.
The lake can get rough when strong winds prevail.
The reading spot is shallow at approx. 1.3m but varies considerably, sometimes up to 3 to 5 inches (0.075 to 0.125 M) in the couple of days following heavy rains.
The topography from the dock rises sharply @ a rate of approximately 9M in 24M. Trees are mostly very mature red & white pines, red oak, beech & maple.
The depth of the lake varies from approx. 9M to 33.5M
The lake was declared a Lake Trout Sensitive Lake by the OMNR in 2000.
Test site is mid south end part of lake from boat.
