This 4200+ acre all-sports lake is surrounded by approximately 85% federal land making it a very popular and one of the larger lakes in this area. Stretching 7 miles from end to end, it is a good size lake filled with many different fish species including perch, walleye, bass, muskie, crappies and more. Their was a walleye reef put in on the north side of the lake in the early 90’s and just recently modified to enhance the fish quality of this lake. 

Close to major snowmobile, ATV and groomed cross country ski trails. The North Country Trail and Sand Dunes hiking trails are just up the road. a truly 4-season destination area. 

Brevort Lake Fishing

Brevort Lake is a relatively undeveloped, 4,233 acre lake. Forest vegetation makes up much of the shoreline, although it has many sandy stretches and a good sandy bottom, perfect for swimming. The lake is 30 feet deep in spots, but generally ranges between 10-20 feet deep.

A 2,100 feet long walleye spawning reef was constructed in the lake by the Forest Service to provide stable rock structure on which fish can spawn, making walleye reproduction more successful. Previously, the shifting sand bottom did not allow for this success. Walleye fishing is getting better. Crayfish and other water animals have used the rocks as cover and small mouth bass have started to congregate around the reef.

Walleyes are light-sensitive fish that usually stay close to the bottom in 8-20 feet of water during the day. Most feeding activity occurs at dawn and dusk, but they will often continue to feed in shaded areas. Still fishing, slow trolling, or drifting with night crawlers, minnows, and leeches are effective. Use of a spinner, with trolled or drifted baits, often increases the number of strikes. Jigs with twister tails and minnow-imitating pugs can also be effective. Walleye are a schooling fish. A spot that produces one fish often has several more.

Other species of fish caught here are crappies, perch, sunfish, northern pike and muskellunge. The lake elevation is set by the USGC and maintained by the Federal Forest Service via the Brevort River and Dam system. It’s a great boating, sailing, windsurfing and fishing lake. It’s also exciting to just watch the sun set and let the swans paddle by.
