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)

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
