Fishing on Gunflint Lake


Gunflint Lake has a long fishing history.  Many fishermen have been coming to the area since they were children.  New folks hear the stories, and decide to wet their line in these cold, deep waters.  The lake is home to walleye, lake trout, northern and smallmouth bass.  Our season opens in the spring for the walleye and trout; northern and bass are open throughout the year. 

Gunflint Lake connects to Little Gunflint, Little North, and North Lake to the ease, and Magnetic Lake to the northwest.  This opens the door for short trips or longer adventures to try new waters.  Guides are available in the area. Give us a call, and we can give you the information for setting this up.
