Walleyes bite like crazy from ice out until the middle of june. Slows down July and August then picks up in Sept.Strand lake is a dark water but very clean lake, Fish them all day long. Says Dave
Dry warm beds await you at Budget Host Inn Virginia. People from Duluth love to come to Strand Lake, and Ico Campground is a great local campground. A close by type I-II whitewater run can be encountered on Cloquet River; the US Route 53 to US Route 2 portion
is 11 miles long. This run of Cloquet River is a great site for beginners in whitewater paddling. Check conditions before you go on the whitewater, otherwise it's not safe and sound.
