Jut Lake

Drag Lake PMA

Jut Lake is the largest in this chain of six lakes.

Surmising that Jut Lake gets its name from the many little protrusions of water (bays) that extend out from the main body of the lake.

This area of the BWCAW was burned by a fire that scorched the forest between Muzzle Lake and Kiana Lake in 1903.

The forest fires of 1885-1889 affected the area from Fire Lake up to Disappointment Lake, just to the west of Cache Lake, Fast Lake and Jut Lake.

Approach to Jut Lake

From Beam Lake: Begin on the south end of the lake and head into the peat bog on a course due southwest.

From Fast Lake: Look for the small creek that bisects a boggy area of land on the north shore of the lake.

It is conceivable that paddlers could bypass Beam Lake and Sable Lake by following the tiny creek from Coon Lake to Jut Lake.

Bushwhack to Jut Lake

Bushwhack from Beam Lake: This is the longest bushwhack connecting these six lakes between Lake Insula and Kiana Lake. Starting on the south shore of Beam Lake, head southwest looking for an opening in the tree line in that direction. Eventually, you are in a valley surrounded by trees still heading southwest. You should find a tiny creek making its way through the peat bog in this valley. The tiny creek flows to the southwest passing through peat bog until it reaches a small unnamed pond/lake. This stretch is about 160 rods. Immediately to the left of where you entered the small pond, another little creek flows out toward the south through dense forest. Follow this creek for about 30 rods to another smaller pond. From this last pond, it is another 15 rods or so along a creek to Jut Lake. This last stretch could be floatable in a canoe.

Bushwhack from Fast Lake: A short but intense bushwhack of around 20 rods. From Fast Lake, carry your gear along the minor creek that passes through the forest. The creek runs straight north. It is a bushwhack the whole way as the creek is probably not navigable.

Exploring Jut Lake

There is no information on this small lake available on the Internet. The lake has many small bays, points and creeks to explore as its name implies A large island hugs the northwest corner of the lake. There are several other miniscule islands dotting other areas of the lake.
