Deer Ridge Resort
North Country Fishing
Iron Chain of lakes offers the fisherman a choice of four lakes with over
6,000 acres of some of the best world class fishing. All of the lakes in the
chain have a wide variety of structure: reefs, rock piles, wild rice in the
bays, islands, and drop-offs.
Deer Ridge Resort is located on 670 acre
Garden Lake, famous for its smallmouth bass and crappie fishing. Looking for
a trophy northern pike for the living room wall? Just a short boat ride from
Garden Lake to 1,328 acre Farm Lake and you are now in some of the best
northern pike waters in the state. Head west from Farm Lake through silver
rapids and you are now in the 3,649 grand lake of White Iron. If walleye is
your choice of fish White Iron will serve you right with consistent fish in
5-8lbs range. Looking for a true wilderness lake then 618 acre South Farm
Lake is the one. Set inside of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area South Farm
Lake is one of a few lakes open in the BWCA to motorized water craft (25 h.p.
limitation). BWCA day use motor permits are required and only a few are
issued each day which keeps the fishing pressure very low. We can help you
with getting a South Farm permit, but should been done well in advance as
permits are very limited.
