World Class Fishing
Lake Kabetogama and the full Voyaguers National Park system is renowned for world class fishing. Kab has 24,000 acres of water and the combined park system has 84,000 acres of water to cruise. Seriously, this is one of the most adventurous freshwater systems in the world and it consistently is producing a good supply of fish. On Lake Kabetogama most people are hitting Walleye, Sauger, Northern Pike, Bass, Crappie, and Perch, however, there are other species available as well.
For a full list of species, fishery survey, and water quality reports please visit the MN DNR Lakefinder page here: https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/lake.html?id=69084500
Please note that there are a couple special slot regulations to be mindful of:
- Walleye and Sauger, combined possession limit is six (only 4 of the 6 can be Walleye).
All Walleye from 18-26” must be immediately released, and One over 26” is allowed in your possession.
- Northern Pike slot is 30-40” that must be immediately released, and One over 40” is allowed in your possession.
- Other regulations related to fishing Lake Kabetogama are posted at the Dock House.
- *Remember, once you eat them up, you can cross off your possession counts!
SeasonsSpring - fishing always creates excitement as fish travel from spawning beds to shallow reeds.
Warming Waters - by mid June, schooling walleyes travel to deeper waters challenging anglers to follow their feeding habits.
Mid-Summer - you'll find many anglers throwing everything in their tackle box at those lunker northern pike.
Fall - walleyes are still biting and it can be the best time all year for crappies.
Winter - get setup on the ice and mix it up!
