Grand Portage area

4 posts in this topic

I will be heading to Grand Portage for the weekend for Rendezvous Days and I was wondering if there are any shore fishing options for that area with spinning gear. I've heard the Pigeon river can be good. What a bout any thing that runs into the lake?

Leechbait, I can help you out on this one. First of all the Pigeon River can be good for Walleye during August. Try fishing off shore in the landing area with a leech and slip bobber set down about 4'. Cast out as far as possible to the middle of the current and let it drift down.

The other thing to try would be hiking into Taylor lake (off the Trout Lake Road) and casting from shore with small spoons for trout. You will have to go in the early morning or evening to have the best chance there.

You will have to check about fishing permits for non-band members. There may be reciprocity with band-members from other MN Chippewa tribes.

Thank you sir, I will check on that as I am a member of the White Earth Band.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
