Birch Lake Fishing


Birch Lake is located in St. Louis County and is known for great Walleye and Northern Pike fishing. Much of the lake is good for fishing and there's lots of gravel and rock, and the rock piles and points are the best places to fish for Walleyes. In the western half of Birch Lake, the shallows, rocks and islands south of Birch River Narrows can be good for early season action. Later in the season as the water warms, you'll want to try the rocks and reefs farther east. Marsyla Reef off Deer Island, and Blueberry Island, along with other outcrops on the lake's south shoreline often hold fish. And in the east end of Birch Lake, try the rocks along both shores and way down by the dam. For Northern Pike, the back bays around the weedlines is productive. Birch Lake has an average depth of 12 feet, with a maximum depth of 25 feet.
