Description

Juno is a long, narrow, and relatively shallow lake, to the south of, and parallel to, the west end of big Brule Lake in the southeastern corner of the BWCAW. (Despite its close proximity to Brule, Juno lies in the watershed of the Temperance River, not the Brule). Over 3 miles long, most of its 248 acres are less than 15' in depth, with a 23' maximum. A 60 rod portage out of the northeast end connects with Brule while at the opposite end of the lake, a 65 rod carry leads into Vern. Along its southern shore, Squire Creek drops in from Squire and Whip lakes to the south.

Campsites

Juno supports three established campsites, broadly spaced along the northern shore.

Planning Considerations

Juno, along with neighboring Vern, provides the link between Brule in the north and the Homer/Pipe lakes down along the southern edge of the BWCAW as well as the Temperance River country to the west by way of the Vern River.

Wildlife

Juno supports populations of Northern Pike (Esox lucius), Walleye (Stizostedion vitreum), White Sucker (Catostomus commersoni), and Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens).

Notes and Comments

Consider bushwhacking into Squire and/or Whip if you have extra time on Juno. They're just up Squire Creek.
