The Bemidji area lakes provide many recreational opportunities. With over 400 lakes in a 25 mile radius, there are plenty of options for boaters and fishermen. There are plenty of resorts and lodges as well as other accommodation for you to choose from.
Anglers love having so many different lakes to fish. You can target the smaller lakes that don’t have as much fishing pressure or you can target some of the bigger lakes that the area fishing guides make a living on. Most fishermen come here for the tremendous walleye fishing, but you can also target northern pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass, perch, crappie and other panfish. Take a look at our Bemidji Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
