Package Dates: Spring & Summer
Fish one of Minnesota’s premier walleye lakes
3 night package with 2 guided days of solid fishing
Big Saganaga Lake is considered one of the finest walleye lakes in Minnesota, with hogs caught almost every day (28″ or longer). The record walleye for the state was taken on Sag, and most weeks there are 10 pounders and larger caught. Most of the big ones are photographed and released, since they’re the big females that contribute significantly to the success of the spawning run each spring. Besides walleye, Sag is home to northern pike, lake trout, smallmouth bass and whitefish. So come up with your family or a few fishing buddies for some great fishing, great food and a comfortable cabin to sleep in. We’ll provide everything you need for the fishing, and all your meals, too. For your lunches we’ll either pack sandwich lunches or you can opt to have hot Shore Lunch cookouts.
Sag is the largest and deepest lake in the Boundary Waters wilderness. Its surface area is almost 14,000 acres, and it has over 500 islands and lots of reefs and rock piles. So you’re much more likely to have success when you fish with a guide.
To fish Saganaga most effectively, you will need a Remote Border Crossing Permit from Ontario, so you can fish both sides of the lake (Minnesota and Canada). You should allow 4-6 weeks for this permit to be received after you submit your application. The information on this is available at:http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publications/forms-formulaires/bsf386-eng.pdf . You will need your passport since you may be spending some of your fishing hours on the Canadian side of the lake.
