Fishing on Lake Winnie

View Our Fishing Report

Tamarack Lodge on Lake Winnie is your gateway to some of Minnesota’s best trophy walleye and jumbo perch fishing! Lake Winnie is home to the state Musky record and also produces many trophy size Northern Pike. In addition to these widely sought after fish, Lake Winnie also has excellent populations of Crappies, Sunfish, and a virtually untouched population of huge Largemouth Bass. Unlike some other lakes, Lake Winnie not only produces limits of fish in the spring, but throughout the summer, fall and winter.

In the fall, Walleye, Musky, and Northern fishing is phenomenal and come mid-November the duck, ruffed grouse and deer hunting is spectacular! Winter ice fishing brings awesome Jumbo Perch and Walleye opportunities, with plowed lake access to the best fishing spots on Lake Winnie! No matter what time of year, we have people in camp that can help you catch fish. From professional guides to hard-core local fishermen, we always have up to the minute information about where the fish are and what they are biting on.


Tamarack Lodge EagleIn addition to fishing, we have numerous family outdoor activities. Our location on Lake Winnie and in the Chippewa National Forest also provides spectacular Bald Eagle viewing opportunities, miles of hiking trails, cross country skiing, ATV, and snowmobile trails. There are three casinos just a short drive from your cabin and great shopping in Grand Rapids, Walker and Bemidji. If you enjoy golf, there are several nearby championship courses.

Our Lake Winnie resort’s cabins are fully equipped and spotless when you arrive. They include appliances, cable TV, cooking utensils, bedding, picnic tables and barbeque grills plus other amenities.
