Fishing on Sugar Lake
From muskie and northern pike to largemouth bass and just about every type of Minnesota pan fish imaginable, Sugar Lake’s size, depth, and accessibility make it a perfect spot for those who love to fish year round.
The lake reaches more than 60 feet deep in some areas and offers various fishing sweet spots that locals have discovered. Those who have been fishing on Sugar Lake for any amount of time will tell you that what the lake lacks in quantity of fish, it makes up for in size. In 1967, Sugar Lake was actually chosen as a muskellunge lake. Sugar Lake’s water clarity and size make it an ideal habitat for muskie, among other fish like walleye, largemouth bass, and crappie.
When the cold weather comes, the fishing doesn’t stop. Ice fishing on Sugar Lake produces some of the same great catches that the summer months boast.
