Trout Lake is known for rainbow and lake trout ice fishing. The fish taste amazing right out of the cold, clean water. Take a short walk to our heated ice fishing house, or take your snowmobile on the lake and find a ‘hot spot’ of your own. Let us know if you’re interested in reserving the ice fishing house.
There is fishing for walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and pan fish at Elbow Lake and Northern Light Lake. Both lakes are within a few miles of the resort.
