Early Spring Fishing

Get a jump on great fishing this spring

May 8 – June 12, 2020

Spring is a great time for walleye and lake trout fishing in our northern clear-water rocky lakes. The walleye will have finished spawning and will be schooled up in the warmer bays of the main lakes. The lake trout will still be in the shallows while the water’s cold, feeding near the ledges and reefs. The smallies will be spawning on the gravel bars and along the shore.

Grab your buddies or bring the family and come for any number of days you choose.  You’ll start with a filling breakfast each morning.  We’ll go over the lake map with you and give you pointers on the most likely spots. Or if you’d like to include some guided days, we have experienced guides available. We’ll be glad to provide you with a packed lunch to take on the boat with you if you’ll be out all day. Then when you’re through with your fishing, you’ll find a tasty hot dinner waiting for you back at the Lodge.

The Spring Fishing Package includes

  • Accommodations in a lakeside fireplace cabin
  • All meals from dinner on your day of check-in through breakfast on your day of checkout

Special Note: Both Minnesota and Canadian fishing licenses are available on-line and you may purchase them before you leave home.
