Lake Kabetogama has hundreds of island campsites maintained by the Park with docks, tent pads, campfire rings and primitive toilets. Most also have lockable bear boxes for your food. Some of my favorites are Windigo Bay, great views, Cutover Island on the south side, Grassy Island site, another one with great views, but it does have bears at times,  and my favorite, Blue Fin Bay, which has great crappie fishing, views and lots of wildlife.

DNR Lake Kabetogama Info

Status of the Fishery (as of 06/12/2010)

Spring came early in 2010 and while it was not a particularly warm summer it did provide an extended growing season and an early start for many of Lake Kabetogama's fish species. Record early ice outs in the area and only one cold snap during the month of May allowed Kabetogama's black crappie and smallmouth bass to spawn successfully. Low water levels in early spring deprived northern pike and
perhaps perch of the vegetation preferred for spawning which may have delayed or reduced the success of those species spawning efforts. Strong year-classes of walleye are not occurring as frequently as they once were. While at this time we are unsure of the cause, high juvenile mortality appears to be affecting walleye recruitment and therefore production of strong year-classes.
This high juvenile mortality has dropped considerably in the last two years, but the effects of that decrease may take several years to become apparent in the walleye community of Lake  Kabetogama. CLICK HERE FOR MORE

Voyageurs National Park Winter Ice and Trail Conditions Report

 

Release Date:  February 11, 2015

Voyageurs National Park Winter Ice and Trail Conditions Report

INTERNATIONAL FALLS, MN – Voyageurs would like to welcome the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA), who will be riding the park and area trails this weekend. Fresh snowfall this week has helped improve all trails and portages just in time for their 2015 Winter Rendezvous. Snowmobilers can enjoy the ease of traveling on groomed surfaces at Voyageurs National Park thanks in part to the park’s gateway community snowmobile clubs: International Voyageur, Ash River – Kabetogama Snowdrifters, and Voyageur Trail Society.

 

Visitors to the park can enjoy the groomed trails by visiting a scenic rock formation, Grassy Bay Cliffs. Located on Sand Point Lake between the communities of Ash River and Crane Lake, Grassy Bay received its name from being a portage that was most likely used during the fur trade. The portage was a short cut between Sand Point Lake and Namakan Lake, and its earliest map reference was in 1913 on the International Joint Commission map.

Outstanding geologic outcrops, such as Grassy Bay Cliffs, are one of the reasons Voyageurs National Park was established. Visitors to this area of the park can see a unique outcrop of the Lac La Croix biotite granite, the same rocks that make up much of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. While the geologic story of the park dates back 2.8 billion years and shows a variety of different geologic features, this outcrop shows some of the “younger” rocks of the park, “only” 2.6 billion years old. In addition to its impressive age, this rock outcrop reaches more than 80 feet high and is truly a scenic experience.

Please remember the snowmobile speed limit within the park is 45 mph on frozen lake surfaces and 25 mph on all overland portages. Speed limit signs are posted at trailheads and portages.  The speed limit for the ice road is 30 mph.

Lake Kabetogama Ice Road

The Park Service will have the ice road from Lake Kabetogama Visitor Center to the Ash River Visitor Center again this winter, approximately 9 miles. This has really opened up some new areas for ice fishing. We fished around Chase Island one day last winter and had great walleye action. The Ash River opening has been great in the past for walleye and crappie;try from 40-42' of water. I noticed a couple of permanent houses up their last year. The east end of Cuculus Island and south of Headlight have also been pretty good in previous winters.

Kabetogama Fishing Report

Click Here For The Latest Fishing Report.......

5/20/2012- We got out between storms yesterday and had a great bite in 7-10' of water at Bittersweet Island.  The wind was blowing hard and at times it was a downpour but the fish were biting best when the weather was at it's worse.  I'm glad we stayed out.  Chubs and a jig are by far the best bait right now.  We tried leech's but had nothing with them.  Ram Island has been good when the wind isn't blowing 20 MPH.  I talked to some guys who have been fishing Harris Island in 30-32' and getting fish, lots of keepers deep and big fish shallower.

5/1/2012  Fishing opener is is 12 days and the lake levels are higher than I can remember in years for this time of the year.  Fishing should be awesome on opening weekend.  Some spots to try would be Tom Cod Bay where the walleyes move into to feed on spawning shiners, the flats between Cemetery Island and Three Sisters and Etling Island area.  For someone without a boat, walleyes can be caught from the point at Woodenfrog Campground using a slip bobber and minnow.

6-30-11  Center Reef has been hot the last couple of days.  We picked up limits of keepers along with lots of big fish on Lindy rigs and leeches.   28-30 feet were the best depths.

June 23- The rain and wind finally went away and fishing was great.  2 of us picked up 7 walleye, all 15-16" using leeches and a Lindy Rig in 25' of water.  Harris Island and the NE side of Sugarbush were the spots.  We threw back about 15 that were to big, with the largest being 24".  1 of the group fished after dark in Eks Bay and hammered the crappies.  White jig and a minnow fished under a bobber about 2' did the job.  Friday looks like another beautiful day to be on the water.

 

June 20- Walleye bite was great using leeches and crawlers.  Channel marker 38 area in 20', west side of Rottenwood, Etling Island and the area around Bluefin Bay were all great.  Crappies have started to bite near shore on Bittersweet Island in the evening and in Ek Bay at night using white Uncle Buck Crappie Killers with a small minnow.  Lots of bear activity in the last week.  We've been seeing them everywhere, particularly on Sugarbush and Martin Islands.

June 15- What a difference a day makes. Wednesday, June 15 it was like someone flipped a switch, you couldn't keep the walleyes off your line. They were biting on everything, minnows, leeches and crawlers all caught fish. 18-20' seemed to be the best depth, but I heard of some people getting them as shallow as 6'. Three Sisters, Bittersweet and Cemetery were all great spots. I sure hope this keeps up for awhile.

June 14-Walleye fishing has been terrible all week. None of the usual spots are doing anything. One guide fished all morning on Kab with about 5-6 fish total caught, then headed to Rainy by way of Kettle Falls portage and caught nothing, not 1 fish! Listening to the scanner it sounds as though everyone is experiencing the same thing. I'm headed up to Lost Bay this morning to see if there is anything happening up that way.

Fall Crappie On Lake Kabetogama

As summer comes to an end, the thought of cooler temperatures and crisp mornings start occurring in the minds of most anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. This is the time of year when most people start cleaning their guns and get ready for the opening day of deer archery, small game and duck season. What most people do not realize is this is the time to score BIG on fall crappie.
Fall crappie fishing can be some of the most exciting and predictable fishing there is! As the water temperatures start to drop, crappie start feeding in preparation for winter. They start gorging themselves minnows. What is so unique about this behavior is the fish prefer areas that have easy access to deep water but yet have the choice of shallow water for feeding purposes. One of my favorite areas for September/October crappies is Sullivan Bay and the mouth of the Ash River on Lake Kabetogama. The crappies have started and they are big. We got some last week that went over 15”. The recent cool weather seems to have turned them on early.

2015 Minnesota Fishing Opener

The 2015 Minnesota Fishing Opener is Saturday, May 9. If you are coming up to Kab and need some spots to try, here are a few. The west end will be the best. Try Tom Cod Bay up in the weeds in 5-6 feet with a 1/8th ounce jig and minnow. Three Sisters Island is one of the top early season spots, just look for the boats. Bald Rock Bay in 15-18 feet is a good spot. Harris Island is always a good opener spot, but usually there will be a lot of boats. Fish shallow for the trophies and move deeper for the keepers. Bittersweet Island with a jig and minnow on the north side out to the channel marker is sometimes real hot. The southwest corner of the island can be good for Crappie in the evening.

No boat, no problem!  Go out on the point at Woodenfrog and fish with a slip bobber and minnow.  Lots and lots of walleye are caught every year around the point.  Try setting your depth at about 8 feet.

Lost Bay Crappie

Right now the crappie are scattered out all over Lost Bay.  What we found is that were stacked on the sharp drop offs.  We found an occasional fish in the deeper water but caught most of our fish in 15-20 feet of water using white jigs and crappie minnows.  Best fishing was from about an hour before sunset to an hour after sunset.  Park service should be stacking trails and grooming trails pretty soon.  I'd follow tracks if going by snowmobile as there is still some spots that aren't real good ice.  We found anywhere from 6 - 10 inches of ice.

Grants available for events celebrating 50th anniversary of Minnesota state water trails

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Minnesota’s state water trails system, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is encouraging communities and outfitters to apply for grants to plan and implement special events throughout the state.

“Contrary to national declines in outdoor recreation participation, canoe and kayak registrations in Minnesota have continued to increase,” said Erik Wrede, state water trails program coordinator for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “In fact, kayak registrations increased 56 percent from 2008 to 2012. However, many canoe and kayak owners have either never heard of or do not know much about the Minnesota state water trails system. This anniversary is an ideal opportunity to raise awareness about the state water trails system and increase participation in water recreation.”

A total of $15,000 is available for the grants, which are new this year and made possible by funding from watercraft registration. Individual grant amounts will depend on the number and nature of the applications received. Applications are due by 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 20.

Opening Day Walleyes On Kabetogama

Fishing opener is fast approaching so I'll share some ideas for catching Kab walleyes and sauger. The early season walleyes are in shallow water like you find in Tom Cod Bay, Moose Bay and a smaller overlooked bay, Bald Rock. Kabetogama walleyes can also be found relating to shallow water structure, includes rocks, weeds, timber, as well as sand flats and breaks, depending on what’s available. The area between Cemetery Island and 3 Sisters is always good along with the east end of 3 Sisters(you'll always see lots of boats on this spot). Trolling from the opening into Gold Portage to Windigo Bay campsite is also good early in the season.

One of the keys to early season success on Lake Kabetogama is finding the areas that hold the largest, and most active schools of fish. A lot depends on ice out, the earlier the ice out the faster the water warms before opener. Some of the best fishing opener spots can be right off the docks at some of the resorts. Park Point sits right on the end a Peninsula and can be good, I've fished from the dock at Driftwood on opener and had great success and I know some people from the Twin Cities who go to Grandview just for the dock fishing. They always get a bunch of nice fish. Use a slip bobber and a minnow just off the bottom.

Everything being equal, look for areas that may be warmer than the rest, even if it’s only a degree or two. That would suggest northern and western most shorelines like Tom Cod and Bald Rock, as they receive the largest benefit of a warming sun.

At listening sessions, hunters give deer managers an earful

By Joe Albert Associate Editor

Brainerd, Minn. — DNR deer managers have met with hunters in three parts of the state as part of a listening session tour to hear what they’re thinking.

While some of the nitty gritty that hunters talk about varies by area – sessions have been held in Bemidji, Brainerd, and Cambridge – the overall message is the same: “What we’re hearing from folks, certainly, is that they would like to see more deer,” said Leslie McInenly, DNR big game program leader. “We knew that going in.”

The sessions, which the DNR is co-hosting with the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, continue this week – in Morris and Nicollet on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively – and next week – in Virginia on Tuesday.
