There are three ‘rivers’ into or out of Kahshe Lake. One flows from Bass Lake to Kahshe Lake. The other two flow out of Kahshe Lake into Sparrow Lake. The river at the end of Grant’s Bay is the smallest during the summer months because it is fed only by a small spillway thru the dam. This flows under Hwy #11 at the old bridge beside McClelland’s home and office. From there is curls thru a few hundred acres towards Robinson Haulage’s office and into the main river coming Kahshe Lake. The main river comes from the dam on the South Kahshe Lake Road. This is controlled by a log spillway managed by the Ministry of Natural Resources. They try to drain the lake more before the spring run off and since 2012 the water levels have been kept higher in the Lake during summer months. The Kahshe River is difficult to navigate by canoe because of the beaver dam, the drop thru a granite gap to a pool and the river disappears in the summer in places below the rocks. Generally shallow there are pockets and pools up to 8 feet deep. There were herring in the river. The acidity of the water flowing out of Kahshe Lake is greater than that in Sparrow Lake where the zebra mussels thrive. The acidity of the water is high enough to kill the zebra mussels before they get up the river to Kahshe…hopefully they do not adapt!. There are few cottages on the river but there is a mobile trailer park.
