Jessie Lake, Minnesota. Your vacation place for
Welcome to Jessie Lake, Minnesota, located in one of the most scenic regions in the USA, the Chippewa National Forest. Jessie Lake (or sometimes called Big Jessie Lake because of its smaller cousin to the west, Little Jessie Lake) is one of Minnesota's top medium-sized walleye lakes. If you're thinking of visiting North Central Minnesota, this site should offer information to help you plan your next visit.
Fishing is the primary draw of vacationers to Jessie Lake. There's no doubt about it. It's a special gem located within a cluster of jewels in Northern Minnesota. It's small enough to enjoy without worrying about getting lost, yet big enough to support a multitude of fresh-water fish. It's also 65% undeveloped providing relaxing, safe and serene surroundings.
For winter activities, Big Jessie Lake offers excellent walleye, crappie, northern pike and jumbo perch fishing. It's centrally located among 1,000 area lakes and is within minutes from Big Winnie and Bowstring Lakes. Jessie Lake does not have a special slot limit on any species, so anglers are encouraged to practice good fishing ethics to help sustain a healthy fishery. The lake is stocked 2 out of every 4 years with almost 2 million walleye fry and the Jessie Lake Watershed Association works with the Minnesota DNR to carefully monitor lake quality and fish populations to ensure a healthy lake for years to come. For other winter sports, the Marcell Snowdrifters Snowmobile Club grooms the Bowstring Trail, which passes on the south end of Jessie Lake and connects to every other trail in the state.
Jessie Lake is located between two national scenic byways - the Edge of the Wilderness and Avenue of Pines. Whether you fish, hunt, bike, hike, snowmobile, ski, or just want to relax, tranquility surrounds you in a place where nature, modern accommodations and friendly hospitality co-exist.
