I have a friend who owns some property up there and was wondering what the fishing is like? 25hp max or is it inside the BWCA? What is the fishing like over that way? I was invited to head up there this June say around the 25th. Is this an area a person can get into lake trout or other trout nearby? I am considreing heading up there but know absolutely nothing about the lake. I'll have a place to stay and maybe a boat or canoe to use. Anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking the slip bobbing thing with a leech and pulling live bait rigs and or casting with raps to likely looking areas at low light. How far is this from Mike Berg and Seagull creek outfitters? If it is near enough I may have to just hire them and learn from the guys that do it everyday? Thanks for any input, his property appears to be in the far end of the bay from Rocky point.

You will pass Mike Berg's place a mile or two before you hit the landing to Sag. Never been on the Canadien side, so can't help you there. 25 hp limit on the Minnesota side. No horsepower limit on the canadien side. Sag Is a great lake. Definetly take your buddy up on the trip. Have fun, Junky......

Contact Berg as soon as possible. He gets booked up pretty fast that time of year.

Another option, a very good option I should say, is Roger Campbell @ Gunflint Pines Campground. Rates are going to be high no matter where you go, but imo, well worth it. Give me an email tunrevir, and ask me some questions you would like answered, and I'll do what I can to help. kmaki16298@aol.com You REALLY need to get up there. lol Junky...............

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
