Inland lakes near the North Shore of Lake Superior are indeed some of the clearest, coldest and deepest bodies of water in Minnesota.

From water temperature, to what lives near and in the lakes could change in the coming decades. At greatest risk from the threats of climate change among the native fish population are a treasured species: the lake trout.
