Abstract: 

Kushog Lake, located in Stanhope Township, Haliburton County serves as a reservoir for the Trent-Seven Waterway and so is subject to periodic water level fluctuations by means of the Kashagawi Dam located at the south end of the lake.  Ox Narrows, which separates the north and south sections of the lake , has for many years been observed as an area of lake trout spawning activity.  From as early as 1952, local MNR personnel have voiced concern over the effects of fall and winter drawdown on the lake trout reproduction.
