Six Mile Lake & Upper Chain O' Lakes Map Antrim County Michigan

North of Central Lake, are six narrow lakes that complete the Chain O' Lakes system. Starting with Hanley Lake then north through the Green River to Wilson Lake. Between Hanley Lake and Benway Lake an old lift bridge runs over the Green River on Muhrman Bridge Road. It has been inoperative for some time and has a clearance of only five feet. As you head north through Wilson Lake, and just before you reach Ellsworth Lake, there is another small private bridge at five foot clearance. As go further north through Ellsworth you reach the northern most lake, St. Clair Lake. You must pass through a 12 foot wide culvert with five foot clearance and 3 feet of water to reach it. The Chain O' Lakes turn south from here through marsh land and into Six mile Lake, the largest of the northern lakes. Due to the connecting rivers smaller boats are recommend for this Michigan fishing tour.
