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)

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
