Jacqueline Lake is a very soft water bog lake located seven miles north of Polonia in the Town of Sharon. This 40 acre lake has a volume of 175 acre-feet, a maximum depth of 17 feet, and an estimated retention time of 3.4 years. The bottom consists of sand and muck. It is a unique seepage lake with floating bogs and a tamarack-black spruce swamp on the north shore. There are no inlets or outlets. Without aeration, frequent winterkills limit the fishery; however, northern pike, largemouth bass, and panfish are present. Attempts have been made to control dense aquatic vegetation with only partial success. The lake was rapidly developed in the 1960s and early 1970s. As a result much of the wildlife use of the lake is gone; however, this lake is rich in rare plant species and the north end provides excellent wetland habitat.
