Trout up North

11 posts in this topic

Does anybody know of any small lakes of north of virginia that have good shore fishing for trout? I fish up on vermilion all summer and am looking for a little lake to catch trout up there. Ive seen Jammer lake up on 53, does this lake have good fishing?

Jammer's the main one I know about. The fishing there is typical of any stocked lake.

If you do a search, there was a thread from last summer/fall on the same subject...

Check out this link:

MN DNR Trout Lake List

It is organized by county. You may also want to get a Sportsman's Connection Map book for St. Louis County and maybe even The Arrowhead. They have a ton of lakes, including a lot of the small trout lakes in the area.

What end of Vermillion are you staying at? If you are on the east end and don't mind doing a little driving there are quite a few options in the Ely area.

I would strongly recommend the map books. If you haven't seen them you will be amazed at the amount of info in them.

Good luck!

I have a seasonal campsite at hoodoo point on the east end so im up there a lot all summer. I would be willing to make a couple drives to ely to fish. Thanks for the tips.

not terribly familiar w/ the area; but Looking for the name of the lake across the road from Burntside; Little bit of a hike back there, I think fourwheelers are not permitted. but caught nice brookie and others that day, just can't remember what they called it. any locals have an idea?

Kind of vague question, confused.gif "across the road from Burntside". Could be Chant, Hanson, Reganbogen (SP?)High, or Dry. All in the Burntside area. Hope this helps.

That last one may bit it, I'll have to confirm it w/ grandpa. All of those lakes possibly hold brookies? I never have seen a brookie that size since. May have to come up and do some exploring again soon.

If you caught brookies, that would be High Lake. It's three miles back from the Bass Lake trail parking lot. I did some winter camping there in Feb.

They get some nice Brookies in High Lake.The state record (since beaten) came out of there, and the guy caught several others over 5lbs the same day. shocked.gif

Yeah we did pretty well although it's a bit of work to get there. I mostly enjoy it for the solitude and scenery. (even though this year the scenery included a dnr officer)

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect
