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.
