Little Gabbro Lake

6 posts in this topic

I am heading to Little Gabbro for a few days in June. Can anyone point me to some good fishing areas on or connected to this lake? Thanks in advance.

Hit the narrows between the two lakes, and where the river comes into Gabbro from Bald Eagle.

You will have good fishing on Big Gabro, try around the first island to the north. You can also go down the lake to where Bald eagle runs into Gabro and fish below the rapids there. Also the current between Gabro and Bald Eagle can be good.

Just don't waste your time in the Kawishiwi River. There are absolutely no walters below the rapids, at the end of the portage from Little Gabbro. Heck there are no walters upstream a few bends, below a much bigger set of rapids either.

Flatlander,

Well, that depends how early in June. There are fish below just about every riffle from early May to sometime around the middle of June. Then it gets pretty slow for many parts of the Kawishiwi.

That's a good point. The last few years, I've done a 4-5 day basecamp fishing trip on the Kawishiwi, but that was always late-May. I've never found any really big girls, lots of 12"-17". There are some monster Pike roaming though. I had one that hit a 16"er on my stringer, that left chomp marks from the middle of the dorsal fin up to the walters snout. It was just a big shadow coming up through the stained water. Made the trip that year.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?

      Crazy birds!  Seen 2 jakes that would putt and cut like hens, a little deeper sound of course, and would talk back to me and Abi.  The Tom was absolutely quiet and disinterested.   Been along time since birds were this quiet.  Tough to make moves.  Probably just better to sit tight and wait.   Good luck.
