Nesland Lake

Nesland Lake is a tiny stocked trout pond 13km ESE of the village of Shell Lake and 80km W of PA. It's located right beside the highway and isn't the prettiest lake.

It's popular as a fishing destination and is stocked with Rainbow Trout and Tiger Trout. I've heard that the Northern Pike in the lake are becoming a problem for the stocked fish. Supposedly they shut off the aerator last winter to try and kill them off. Hopefully, there are still some trout there!

This lake has been personally visited by myself, Matthew Siemens.

Comment from Matthew Siemens
Invasive perch have gotten into the lake. I understand it’s getting pretty hard to catch trout these days because of it.
Visited by Matthew Siemens
Not a very pretty lake, but it's stocked and easy to access which makes it pretty popular.
