Blue Lake Nashwauk,MN (Another Spring found)

Recommended Posts

Was cruising the shorelines yesterday looking for new potential fishing holes when I felt the rear tire hit something, which I thought funny because I was driving straight. Hopped out to check on it and there was water. Grabbed a shovel to see if I just popped through some slush and sure enough there was no layer of ice below and as soon as I moved the ice chunks the bubbles were visible coming to the surface.

This spot is on the east shore after ya go through the first "straight". I was hugging the submerged tree line. There is a white and red ice house just before the spot. Most of you who fish the lake wont have to worry about this as most just stick to the main ice roads. Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone who cruises the shores that there are springs popping up out there this year with this weird weather!


On a side note we measured 20 inches of ice in the first bay on the west side of the lake and about 16 in the community hole in the far back through the last straight.

My uncle is retired but use to work with DNR in rapids. When i first moved to the iron range he told me that the whole Blue Lake basin has a limestone aquifer under it and is slowly sinking. I know the mines flooded the area back in the '80s I believe, but i have a feeling because of the aquifer there are springs everywhere that just randomly open up. I picked up a GPS yesterday so I think anytime I find one I will get the coordinates to post so others can avoid them!
