There are only so many days a year when anglers can enjoy excellent fishing on The Range — 365 to be exact. From the peak of summer through the chill of winter, visitors are invited to fish. Guides are available on selected lakes, and area resorts rent fishing boats, pontoon boats and ice fishing houses. It’s not how many fish you can catch… it’s how many kinds of fish you can catch.
From secluded, rock-walled lakes to peaceful stretches of slow-moving rivers, the region offers excellent opportunities for shore or boat fishing. Crystal clear glacial lakes offer walleye, northern pike, bass, crappie and muskie. Beautiful reclaimed mine pit lakes are stocked with rainbow, brook and lake trout. Scenic flowing rivers host excellent walleye and northern pike populations, and miles of beautiful trout streams let anglers wade in and explore true wilderness trout fishing. Canoe portage lakes offer those seeking solitude access to the Superior National Forest in all its splendor.
