HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

Adams Lake is located approximately 34 miles NE of Ely in the BWCAW. Access to this remote lake requires numerous portages and approximately 2 days of travel. There are 7 designated USFS campsites surrounding the lake for overnight use.

Fish populations in 2016 were dominated by lake whitefish. Northern pike, smallmouth bass and one walleye were also sampled. Low numbers of rock bass and white sucker are present. Three gill nets were set in deeper water and sampled additional whitefish and several pike.

Lake whitefish numbers in 2016 were above the historical average for Adams Lake. Most of the whitefish were small with an average length of 13.4 inches. The largeset whitefish sampled was 22.3 inches long. Whitefish ages ranged from age 3 to age 29 and growth appears to be slow. With no perch or cisco present, whitefish are likely an important forage fish in Adams Lake.

Northern pike numbers in 2016 (2.3/gill net) were below the historical average (3.5/gill net) for Adams Lake. The average pike sampled was 26.8 inches which is larger than the historical average length of 25.3 inches. The largest pike sampled in 2016 was 32.3 inches long.

Smallmouth bass were sampled for the first time in Adams Lake during the 2016 survey. Based on the age data, smallmouth have been present for some time. A total of seven smallmouth were sampled in the gill nets. The largest smallmouth sampled was 18.7 inches. Smallmouth ages were all 10 years or older and growth was slow. Several smaller bass were observed near shore and anecdotal reports are that smallmouth fishing is good on Adams Lake.
