Real Estate on Lake Winnibigoshish, MN


Lake Winnibigoshish often called ("Win-nee") by regulars, is one of Minnesota's Grandest Lakes! It's size is about the size of the entire city of St. Paul!
It is located in Northern Minnesota right in the middle of the state on Hwy 2 in the Chippewa National Forest and bordering the Leech Lake Indian Reservation.

The Winnie ponds are a Wildlife Management Area for rearing fish. And also by the ponds is the Winnie Dam.
.
The Winnie Dam is a real neat place to spend some time when in this area. Only a half hour drive west of Grand Rapids, MN. You can look down into the water and watch huge Walleye, Northern, Perch and many other species of fish try to get back up into Winnie! It's Really a lot fun to watch them! I think they got sucked down the 8 foot drop by the current of the Dam, and they don't appear too happy about going down stream below the small 1 foot drop off you see above. We literally saw 5 - 10 lb Walleyes. 30 of them I bet. Over 200 fish can be seen in this small area shown above. Sorry.... NO FISHING WITHIN 300 ft. of the Dam!  Darn! "Excuse my french!" LOL!
.
Across from the Dam is a nice small park with a pavillion and some activities for the kids...go stretch the legs and have a sandwhich! Look at the people watching the fish below, it really is a neat site to see.

The outlet current of the Dam - The dark shadows of fish did not show up well here in this photo, but believe me, they're in there! And they try scooting up the current and don't quite make it. They put on a good show!
The Winnie Dam shown above is located on Hwy 9 north from Hwy 2. There are signs on Hwy 2 directing you to the Winnie Ponds and Wildlife Management Area.
