Most of the ice on the lakes of the Gunflint Trail is thick enough to walk on and that’s good news for ice anglers. People have been out on the lakes fishing and are even reporting catching some. We haven’t had a chance to get out and fish yet but hopefully we’ll have the opportunity soon.
The best is yet to come. We love fishing for Lake Trout and the opener is just a few days away. Come on up and experience ice fishing in the Boundary Waters and on the Gunflint Trail.
From the Minnesota DNR- For lakes entirely within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), except for Ram Lake, the open season for lake and stream trout will be from Dec. 29, 2007 through March 31, 2008. For lakes outside or partially outside the BWCAW, the season is from Jan. 12 through March 16, 2008.
