Fishing within the Iron Trail

It’s not how many fish you catch…’s how many kinds of fish you can catch!

There are so many days in a year when anglers can enjoy excellent fishing on the Iron trail–365 to be exact.  From the peak of summer through the chill of winter, visitors are invited to fish all along the Iron Trail.

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 and beautiful grand canyon-like reclamined mine pit lakes are stocked with rainbow, brook and lake trout.

Scenic flowing rivers host excellent walleye and northern pike populations, and iles of beautiful trout streams let anglers wade-in and explore true wildernesss trout fishing.  Canoe portage lakes offer those seeking solitude access to the Superior National Forest in all its splendor.

Fishing guides area available on selected lakes and area resorts rent fishing boats, pontoon boats and ice fishing houses.  Fishing piers throughout the region are great–and safe–for family fun.

If you enjoy pristine wilderness, sky blue waters, wildlife watching and great fishing then we invite you and your family to pack your fishing gear, hook up the boat and trailer and find out why the Iron Trail is “A Great Way to Getaway!”
