Originally not connected with navigable streams, 19th century loggers dammed the Cisco Lake outlet to the Cisco Branch of the Ontonagon River to facilitate floating logs out of the area. A permanent low dam was constructed in 1931 to store water for hydroelectric facilities downstream at Victoria Dam. This permanent dam raised water levels between four and five feet, creating navigable channels (which only vary about six inches throughout the year) between the lakes. This dam created the water-sports
paradise that the chain is known for today. Most of the channels are navigable by nearly all watercraft, although underwater hazards in the form of sunken logs and sand bars exist. Most of these are clearly marked on navigation maps. The underwater obstructions on the Cisco Chain that frustrate boaters, good weed cover and spring-fed waters provide excellent fish spawning and feeding areas to a variety of game fish!
