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.

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)

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
