I'm looking for a lake that doesn't have residential built up all around it. With boat ramp. As close as possible to the city, for a day trip. I'd like the illusion, at least, of fishing in the wilderness. I don't even care how good the fishing is I never catch much anyway. Any ideas welcome.

Hey torpedo,

Welcome to the forum!

The problem with your request is that everything has some residential on it, all the way up to the BWCA. People put a premium on lakefront and there has been a push for this type of property for the past 10 years. People living in the cities are looking all the way up in the LOTW area for just what you are looking for. There are a few lake that are private you might be able to find, but you would need permission to get on those. Other then that, I am not sure I can help you... anyone else?

I only know a few of the lakes in the area and they are just W of the Metro. Lake Independence has quite a bit of "non-populated" lakefront, but it's close to a well used highway and close enough to the city so the boat traffic is heavy. Lake Sarah is another nice lake with some quiet parts but there are homes on the majority of the lake. You might have to go a little further out of town to find a quiet lake with little population on it. I personally like some of the smaller lakes in the NW Burbs because they don't get a whole lot of boat traffic in the evenings during the week and have had plenty of great nights where I was one of few (if not the ONLY) boats on the water. Good luck in your search.

The Chisago chain of lakes sounds like what you need. Great fishing ,good wilderness. Lots of fish to be found. Good luck and Welcome aboard.

Don't forget the Mississippi River both north and south of The Cities. There are alot of other rivers that can give you I'm by myself feeling, at least for a few minutes.

I don't have much experience around your entire area but I can second the Chisago suggestion, when you can watch a bald eagle in its nest it gives you a very good "wilderness" feeling. Of course, I live in South Florida where we cut down the trees and name the streets after them, so anything that has less that 10,000 people per sq. foot seems like wilderness to me . . .

When fishing I always look for the same wilderness feeling. I head up to the Duluth area every summer for day trips. It makes for a long day but its worth it.
Most of the lakes up there have some homes built around them but I would say that 90 percent or better is still natural shoreline. The lake that I frequent also has atleast 4 bald eagles that nest there.

You have to watch out for loons as well, they are everywhere it seems.

Its about a 2 1/2 hour drive from the Twin Cities so its not to bad. Good fishing and good scenery makes up for the car time.
