Know before you go Superior National Forest

Minnesota fishing opener on Saturday, May 15

DULUTH, MINNESOTA   ~~~~~~~  May 12, 2021  (LSN)  With fishing opener in the land of 10,000 lakes just around the corner, officials on the Superior National Forest would like to remind anglers and other visitors to recreate responsibly and plan ahead before traveling to the Forest for the weekend.   
 

Find a fishing spot: The Forest boasts hundreds of lakes and 77 boat accesses. Motorized and non-motorized boating opportunities are available. As a rule, areas listed under motorized boating are lakes or campgrounds with a drive down boat ramp for launching a trailered boat.  These lakes can also be accessed by non-motorized boats. Find a lake here. 
Find a place to camp: The Forest has 23 fee campgrounds, 18 rustic campgrounds and more than 250 backcountry campsites to choose from. All campgrounds are open for use. Visit the Forest’s website to find a campground.  

  • Fee campgrounds offer some first come, first served sites and some reservable campsites. Campsites can be reserved at recreation.gov and offer services such as electricity and running water. For a list of amenities at each of these campgrounds, visit our camping recreation opportunity guide.  
  • Rustic campgrounds are free of charge and are first come, first served. They have outhouses, tables and fire rings but no drinking water. 
  • Backcountry sites are free of charge and offer a more remote experience while still providing a fire grate and wilderness latrine.  
  • Rustic campgrounds and backcountry sites do not have a garbage service. Please pack your garbage out, and do not bury it or throw it in restrooms/latrines. 

Alternative campgrounds can be found on state forests, state parks, and county land
 

Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness permit holders: To ensure a safe and successful trip and to receive your permit, you must attend either a virtual Leave No Trace & Tread Lightly session or fulfill this educational requirement in-person while picking up the permit at an outfitter or a Forest Service office.  

    IN-PERSON ISSUANCE: Permit holders may pick up permits from an outfitter or a Forest Service office. Forest Service offices are now open and issuing permits in-person. 

  • Covid19 mitigations are in place. In accordance with federal policy, visitors must maintain social distancing and wear a mask.  
  • Kawishiwi and Gunflint Ranger District offices are providing in-person Leave No Trace/Tread Lightly education and issuing permits seven days a week. Tofte, LaCroix and Laurentian Ranger Districts and the Supervisor’s Office are operating Monday through Friday only. Office hours are 8:00am to 4:30pm. 
  • Permit holders will watch the third Leave No Trace video, review the BWCAW Regulations and Rules, hear the latest alerts and receive their permit in-person.  

VIRTUAL ISSUANCE: As a mitigation for Covid19, the Forest is offering a virtual option for permit issuance. Permit holders or alternate group leaders are required to participate in a 20-minute virtual Leave No Trace & Tread Lightly educational session on their entry date or one day prior via Adobe Connect to receive their permit. 

  • Permit holders can expect to receive an email with an invitation to a virtual session, one week before their entry date.  
  • If the session times or dates do not work with your travel plans or you have technical difficulties with the virtual session, please plan to pick up your permit in-person at an outfitter or district office (or contact a ranger district for further information). 
  • All virtual sessions start at 9:00am CT. You may log in as a guest after 8:45am. 
  • During the session, attendees will watch the third Leave No Trace video, review the BWCAW Regulations and Rules, and hear the latest alerts.  
  • After the session, you will receive a copy of your permit via email. The confirmation email is not a valid permit. Print your permit or be able to show your permit electronically for the length of your trip.  

Cold water safety: While fishing opener is here, summer temperatures are not. Lakes in northern Minnesota remain cold through spring and can be dangerous, and even lethal if exposed for several minutes. Learn more about cold water safety here .   

Be bear aware: Bears are out of hibernation and in search of food. A fed bear is a dead bear! Whether you are on the Forest or in the Wilderness, take all precautions to discourage bears from visiting your site and keep your campsite clean. Here are some bear aware best practices: 

  • Dispose of fish remains by traveling at least 200 feet away from campsites, trails, portages and shorelines and pack out live bait.  
  • Never eat or store food in your tent.  
  • Be prepared to securely store your food, toiletries and trash, or anything with a strong or sweet odor in a bear-resistant container, your vehicle or by hanging your food pack.
    Thank you for doing your part to help keep the Forest and Wilderness safe, enjoyable, and pristine for all visitors.
