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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
