Trout/Walleye lake with campground?

Recommended Posts

phishhead

My wife and I looking for a nice campground (or cheap cabin rental) to go to next week. We only have 3 days so I did not want drive more than 2 - 2 1/2 hours. We would like to catch some trout and walleyes and maybe some bluegils. We have a 12 ft boat with a 3 hp or trolling motor and 16 ft with a 50 hp so it doesn't matter what size the lake is (not Superior though). Any info would be great! Thank you in advance!

Post the question in the Brainerd section. You may get better responses. If memory serves me right there are lakes around Brainerd that are stocked with trout. I know Lake Roosevelt has lake trout, as does a lake or two in the Whitefish Chain.

I like Silver Rapids Lodge but it might be a little far for you. It's right off White Iron Lake on the Kawishiwi river just outside of Ely. They have campsites at $15/night and that gives you access to all the resort amenities (Showers, bathrooms, Sauna, etc.). Great Walleye fishing on all three lakes on the chain (White Iron, Farm and Garden). And if you're after trout, there's a lake about 15 minutes up the road called Lake Tofte that's beautiful and full of Rainbows and Splake. My friends and I go up there once a year because it's such a good deal and a great time. It's definitely worth the extra hour or two in the car. The website is silverrapidslodge.com, check it out!

MC CARTHY STATE PARK NORTH OF HIBBING. PICKERAL IS A TROUT LAKE JUST NORTH OF SIDE LAKE THAT HAS SHORE FISHING ACCESS AROUND MOST OF THE LAKE AND THERE ARE MORE BLUEGILLS, WITH SOME BEING VERY NICE, THAT YOU CAN GET INTO ON ANY OF THE 5 LAKES IN THE CHAIN. THERE ARE ALSO SOME WALLEYES AROUND ON THE DEEP WEED EDGES, BUT THAT HIS HIT AND MISS. THE STATE PARK IS THERE AND ALSO THE CC CAMPGROUND. ITS A BIT FURTHER THAN YOU MENTIONED, BUT 3.5 HOURS ISNT ALL THAT BAD.

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
