Gunflint Trout Derby

Gunflint Trout Derby

March 1-4, 2019

Come out for a weekend of fishing and fun on the ice and help support the local snowmobile club, the Cook County Ridge Riders, at the same time!

Your cabin is right on the lake, just steps away from all the activity. Check in Friday night and enjoy dinner at Justine’s dining room. Saturday is the perfect opportunity to start exploring the lake and find your best spot for the competition Sunday. Or explore on land on miles of groomed cross country ski or snowshoe trails. In the evening you can relax in your cabin in a sauna or in-room spa tub or hot tub. Sunday breakfast is included at the Lodge and at 9 a.m. registration opens for the Trout Derby on Gunflint Lake, where you can participate in all the festivities, including the fishing contest, picnic lunch, and contests and raffles.
