Blue Berries/Northern fishing.

6 posts in this topic

My family and I are heading to Bearhead Lake Aug. 31st. Will there still be blue berries in season at that time? Or will that be to late? I was at Rainy Lake 2 weeks ago and found many plants but the berries were still ripening. Looked like they had quite a ways to go. Also looking to tie into some pike for dinner! Is BearHead a good Pike lake? is there much for vegitation on the lake? Thanks for any response!!!!

The blueberries are ripe for the picking right now. I am thinking that in 6 weeks it is going to be over.

We picked our first ripe blueberries this summer on June 30. They are peaking about now. They'll be done by the time you get up here.

On good years we have picked blueberries until the first frosts in September. This is the Hovland/Grand Portage area. Maybe they are done sooner further west?

...there are good pike to be had on bearhead, but being a state park, it is pounded non stop. A great weed bed exists on the main body of water by the west shore....or, about 100 yds from the boat launch, you will find a hump that exists before entering the main lake....you will have to deal with massive boat traffic coming and going, but you will catch pike...

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
