Exploring the environs of Negro Lake

I have been told the lake got its name from a strain of brooktrout that had particularly dark bellies. It is how it is labeled on the map and I know of no other name for the body of water, other than an even less acceptable one from older maps.
It is located in the Five Ponds Wilderness in the Western Adirondacks. The journey would entail 12 miles of lake paddling, 2 miles of trail carry and another 5 miles of bushwhacking. The only objective was to better acquaint with the territory around the lake.

On the older topo maps the lake has a slightly more offensive name listed.

I passed through there a few years ago, on my way from Lows Lake to Stillwater. Canoes were stashed on the north shore, but I had my Hornbeck with me. As I recall it was a very windy day with a strong wind going the length of the lake.
