Winter BWCA Lake Trout Fishing

It’s that time of the winter once again and lake trout fishing outside of the Boundary Waters is now open. There are so many options to choose from when you’re looking for trout on the Gunflint Trail. Wondering how to narrow down your choices? The method of transportation you prefer is one deciding factor. You can snowshoe, cross-country ski, snowmobile or just walk a few feet from the roadway to your fishing hole. You can make getting to the fishing hole half of the fun and whatever method you choose there’s a lake and a lake trout waiting for you.
