Find The River Or Lake For Fly Fishing In Minnesota

November 12, 2022

Summertime Fishing Trips

Central Minnesota is a great place for lake and river fishing. This means it’s an ideal place to find various fishing locations. A popular activity is fly fishing in Minnesota. A great place to settle for a fly fishing adventure is by booking directly with Little Norway Resort. We are near some phenomenal fishing locations that will be well worth visiting. So bring your best tackle and fishing skills to a Central Minnesota lake or river. Here are some pointers.

  • Remember to clean your fly lines before leaving. Over time, fly lines will collect debris and get weighed down. So before you consider buying a new one, wash it down first.
  • Maybe you should practice your cast if it’s been a while since you’ve last been fly fishing. Getting some practice off the water is essential to understand your rod and where you can improve your form before doing it for real in Central Minnesota. 
  • You will need to find an ideal place to fish after arriving here. Straight River and Upper Straight Creek are the best rivers for fly fishing near the Resort.
  • If you want to fish on a lake, you can seek out Newman Lake, Crappie Lake, Blacksmith Lake, and Blue Lake
  • Might we also suggest fishing in Little Mantrap Lake? Little Norway Resort is right on the shores of Little Mantrap Lake. You can find largemouth bass, crappies, sunfish, northerns, and walleyes here.

Catch Your Dinner

Wake up early and get out on the water while the fish are biting and the water is calm. When fishing, anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish including largemouth bass, northern pike, walleye, and much more. If you bring the whole family along, the kids will have a blast catching sunnies and then releasing them back into the water. You can rent a boat with the resort or bring your own. No matter what method, you'll soon find how enjoyable fishing is in the Park Rapids area.

Soak Up Some Rays at Our Sandy Beach

At the end of the day, return to your charming cabin to unwind after a successful day of fishing and enjoying the lake. All of our cabins are within a few feet of the lake and feature televisions, refrigerators, wireless internet, and more. You can even enjoy the fish you caught on your deck that overlooks the lake.
