I am curious if there are any good boat landings to fish in the mine pits near Virginia to Ely. I really like the beauty of being in those lakes. We have been fishing the pits in the Cuyuna Range and want to see some other lakes.

Many of the abandoned mine pits in this area have been planted with trout and have access landings on them.

The pit up on the road to giants ridge has brook, rainbow, and lake trout. Many of the non-stocked pits have northerns and bass in them. Everyone I have ever fished had some type of fish in there. Just be cautious about trespassing if you check out some of the more remote pits. Some of the mining companys are really anal about it.

That one (Embarrass Pit) has a nice landing that is plowed out well and it can be a blast to fish. The water is gin clear so you can watch the fish in 30 feet of water come crusing in and peg your lure.

Miners in Ely is also stocked with rainbows a brookies.

The Buhl pit lake at the end of the downtown one has a nice boat launch area and dock. Stubler lake across from campground has two fishing docks but no launch Mott put in Mt Irin has a boat launch  than there’s the another in Hibbing but don’t know the name

I could be talking out of my rear end, but as a cautionary note, I thought that I remembered reading that many of the pit lakes carry invasive species. I think that the Rouchleau Pit has zebras. My only point is to be careful and read up on the pits before hopping from lake to lake or pit to pit.
