This secluded body of water is a fantastic fishing spot. The Mississippi River also passes through the northern side of the lake, which is great for paddlers to connect with.

Big Wolf Lake is a relatively little lake in comparison to neighboring waters (Leech, Cass, or even Bemidji). 

Start out at the access point on the southwestern part of the lake. The southern bay mostly consists of summer residences. If you paddle north, you'll cross a point that separates the lake into two bays. The northern bay has outlets to the Mississippi River and is also less populated, so it's a little quieter. 

If you're looking to do some fishing, go out on the lake early in the morning or late evening for the best catches. Daytime fishing can be hit or miss. 

You can catch some stellar sunsets in the evening if you decide you can't catch any fish.
