Little history on Lake Bemidji, Minnesota

Lake Bemidji (Beltrami County, MN)

Lake Bemidji is a 6,420 acre lake with a maximum depth of 76 feet located adjacent to the city of Bemidji in southern Beltrami County.  There are a total of six public boat landings located primarily on the north and west shores of the lake.  Lake Bemidji is part of a connected system of lakes which includes Lake Irving upstream and Stump Lake downstream on the Mississippi River.  Both of these lakes are readily accessible from Lake Bemidji and provide additional varied angling opportunities.

This lake is known as a quality muskie fishery with fish up to and above 50 inches available here.  The walleye fishing is also very good on Lake Bemidji.  Other fish include northern pike, largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, rock bass and perch.
