Ely Area Opener -- Lake Trout

2 posts in this topic

Gang:

I'm new to MN (transplated here via Madison, WI) and have some interest in fishing the Ely area for the sacred MN fishing opener. I love fishing for lake trout and am wondering if it's worth the trek north from the Cities to fish for them during the opener?

Any lakes worth trying would be appreciated. I have a 17' Yar-craft and also have an 18' Sawyer canoe, so I'm good to go.

Thanks in advance.

Steve

No matter what, getting out of the cities and up north is worth it.

Burntside, Snowbank(partial inside BWCA) and Ojibway are drive to Lake Trout lakes.

Ima and Thomas are on a good route and opener is a very good time to be in there. Thomas can be done in half a day if you push it.

Theres a post a ways back about early inland lake trout fishing techniques.
