Wilson Lake

5 posts in this topic

I was wondering where Wilson Lake near Tofte is located. And is it close to Fourmile lake. The maps I have are not very good.

It's been a long time but I thought it was closer to Isabella. By Windy and Dumbell kind of.

Wilson Lake is west of Fourmile Lake . It is north of the same grade (road) that Fourmile is just south of . I don't remember the road number off the top of my head, but have driven to both lakes many times over the years. The grade runs between Co.7 and the Sawbill trail . I grew up knowing the grade as the "Wilson Grade" . Others on this forum call it the "Fourmile Grade". The Superior National Forest map will show it.

Wilson is about 3.5 miles south-west of Fourmile Lake as the crow flies. Just a hair under 25 miles driving from Finland.

If you are coming from the south you would take Lake County Road 7 off of Hwy 1 in Finland to Forest Road 170 and then to Forest Road 355.

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
