Fishing for Walleye
They have spread to most of our major lakes and routes of the BACAW, except for an area around Little Saganaga, Long Island, Frost and Gabimichigami lakes where they can't navigate the rapids. The walleye season opens in mid May and continues on through the end of the paddling season. The lakes of the BACAW and Quetico are traditionally deep and rocky, so we fish the walleye off reefs and in bays where bait fish congregate. In May and early June we also fish them below rapids and in narrows where there is some moving water. The Gunflint area is home to the Minnesota record walleye, a bit over 17 pounds.
