Good lake trout fishing on area lakes.

6/1/11 – Good fishing reports are always a welcome sight to Boundary Waters travelers. Over the past week or so I have been hearing fine fish tales of people catching lake trout in area lakes. Just this weekend I talked to a group that had caught a meal off of their campsite and fried them up for a very hardy and delicious brunch.
Lake trout are only found in North America. The furthest south they usually inhabit is northern Minnesota. They are easiest to catch in the spring when the water is still cold and they are in the warmer water of the shallows. As a result of a late ice out date this year fishing has been exceptionally successful recently. – Jessica
This weekend some of the Sawbill boys took some time out of the real world to go fishing. In this picture the boys land a lake trout.
