Fishing on Birch Lake, Minnesota

Fishing on Birch Lake, Minnesota
Located less than 10 miles from Ely, Minnesota, Birch Lake offers some of the best walleye and northern pike fishing the state has to offer. Family activities in the area include swimming and canoeing. Many local resorts offer child care and children's programs so parents can find time for themselves. For adventurous types, Wilderness Outfitters in Ely will prepare and provide you with everything needed for a solo or guided canoe trek though the untouched wilderness. The Marina at Timber Trail offers power boat rentals on Birch Lake as well.

Timber Bay Lodge and Houseboat Rentals

Timber Bay Lodge and Houseboat Rentals offers modern cabins in a rustic setting, with boat access and a marina included. Timber Bay also features luxury houseboats that can be rented for groups of up to 12 people. The houseboats offer many of the same modern amenities as the cabins, so fishermen can leave their lines in the water for days without ever having to dock. The resort also has a full-time children's activities director, giving parents time to fish on their own. Popular resort activities also include hiking the many trails of the Superior National Forest, or biking the paved trails to town or the public beach. At night, the game room and the weekly "Friday Night BBQ and Bonfire" allow guests to unwind after a long day of fishing and relaxing.
