The winter brings snowmobiling and excellent cross-country skiing. Larson Lake, Wolf Lake, and French Rapids will get your heart pumping on groomed trails.
Fishing is great on all area lakes. If it’s solitude you’re after, you’ll find it here. Bay Lake, Clearwater, Nokay and Serpent provide great fishing on larger but uncrowded waters.
For those of you that like the smaller lakes, check out Rabbit (West and East), Reno, Lookout, Crooked, Portage, Crocker, Wolf,and Big & Little Blackhoof. Check with local bait shops for more information.
Trout fishing – The famous Crosby-Ironton mine lakes teem with rainbow trout and can be readily caught throughout the regular fishing season through October 31. Monster northern pike also ply these waters!
River Fishing – The Mississippi is full of walleyes and smallmouth and our section is now stocked with muskellunge. The nearby Pine River provides one of the finest combination trips of canoeing or kayaking coupled with some excellent fishing.
Deer, duck and grouse hunting is all available in the area. Inquire at the DNR headquarters in Ironton for public access information and other hunting related information.
