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)

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
