There isnt much fishing news from Whiteface from the locals ,,, and the access leaves a lot to be desired so not too many trailer up that way from the Duluth area ,,, I drove by it yesterday on my way home from Ely and didnt see a boat on the water

It's been 2 years since I've fished this lake. I hope you have a good navi/GPS program, there is a lot of skag busting structure on that body of water depending on what the water levels are like..trust me. 

 In the past we've only done OK on WFR, and I haven't spent the time to learn it. As LoonASea indicated, its a haul from the Duluth area.  But it is a beautiful lake, and the camp grounds were well maintained. We used the Northern access (campground) ramp, it was in decent shape and the parking lot is nice sized. 

 Sorry I can't be of more help.

I've only fished it a few times but I'll put in my 2 cents. Darkwater lake. Water levels are about normal this year. Try wind blown points/humps. Mainly eater eye's. Lots of small pike in bays/weeds. There are crappies but I haven't tried for them.

I will agree with what has been said so far. Have only fished it a couple times, but always managed enough for a meal. Nothing big, but it also has some big gills if you can find them The campground access is a bit of a chore for big boats, but fully manageable. Have a good map as there are lots of lower unit removers out there. I've always had my best luck fishing flats areas. Fish will be scattered, but nearly always bite. Good luck.

Yep, pretty lake. Lots of area to explore. Maybe not the best place for a big eye but for action I think its as good or better than the other lakes around the Duluth area.

While there is a thread and some chatter on whiteface...anybody ever caught/heard of bass on whiteface? I didn't think there were supposed to be any but when digging around on google I see pics of largemouth's supposedly caught out of whiteface reservoir mn?

I have a cabin on a lake right next to Whiteface. I've been out on the lake twice this year and have caught nothing. I don't know the lake, though. Been peeping potential spots on my Navionics. Will update again if I have any luck.

Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...
