Evergreen Lake

2 posts in this topic

Ok guys and gals I'm hoping someone has some info about this lake. It's the Evergreen lake North of Itasca State Park inside the Schoolcraft Refuge if any others exist. I'm looking at renting a cabin on the lake and just wondering if anyone has fished it before, so I have an idea what the fishing is like. Any info would be great, Thanks in advance for any responses.

This maybe a little late but...

Evergreen Lake is a great quiet, small (200 acres and max about 35ft) lake if you want to have a relaxing time. I wouldn't call it a fishing destination but there are some good fish in there. There are some good bass along the pads and many, many smaller northern, stunted perch/gills and some ok crappies.

The lake was fished very heavy years ago thru the ice and never recovered fully. Word got out and the shacks were stacked on top of each other.

My family owned two cabins on the lake for several years selling them much to my dissapointment a while back and I knew those waters very well. The DNR hase not done much but some eye stocking and I have caught a few while tossing plastics for bass.

I was up last fall and not much has changed except the traffic. Was a time that ten cars going by was a busy day and now prob fifty.

The cabins that I spent my summers have been changed (one is even for sale)and there are more around the lake but if you want scenery, quiet and a few fish w/o jet skis and speed boats you can't go wrong as I don't think that will change.

If you are thinking of renting at the resort Bud and Joy are great and the prices are not bad.

      Wow that is a little discouraging. Looked at the DNR lake info for the last survey which was done on Big Trout lake in 2011. Not one Laker was caught in any of the test net types! Still shows their stocking them but none showed up. Anyone try it on opener and find any Lakers?

      Anyone go out there last weekend for opener? If so how was the ice and the bite? Giving this weekend a thought?

      I personally like the cold and dont mind it. But this week is a nice change and prob wont help the ice building much!

      I remembered I wrote this question. So I'm replying back. I was lucky enough to have a relative who had a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 .357 mag (mint condition) that he was willing to part with. I haven't shot it yet. Been busy. Anyway now what recommendations are out there for 38 shells for plinking. I've read about the problems if using to heavy a load. Thanks
