Echo Trail Lakes??

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on what lakes to checkout for walleyes, trout, and big pike that are located on the echo trail. I am planning on doing a trip this fall and just hitting as many lakes as I can that have portages into them from the trail. I would like to explore some lakes that hold bigger walleyes, big pike, and some trout. Thanks for any help!

When will you be taking your trip??

If you call my shop, (218-365-4744) before 10 am daily, I can give you some names of lakes.

Too much to post on the forum.

I will most likely be taking my trip sometime in late september or early october. Past mid october, I will be living in my treestand chasing the swamp bucks! I will give a call sometime in the morning to your shop. Thanks. Any other suggestions from others who have had good luck on some of those walk-in lakes off of the trail??

Trout is not necessary, but I would like to be on a body of water known for producing some bigger walleyes and pike. I would like to try for some lakers if possible though. I will be trying Burtside sometime this fall, but little out of the way lakes with bonus trout fisheries are always fun to try.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.
