No way, 5  yrs seems like yesterday. Not much has changed, my camper still sits in the same spot. The water level is low but coming up. Its about a 1.5 ft low right now. It will be perfect by the time you folks come. Fishing has been good. We were there last week, came home Monday and going back Thursday. Water temps were still cold last week ( upper 40s ) but we have a nice warm spell on the way. I assume you come through Wisc. and Duluth on your way up but just in case you don't, there is some heavy duty rd construction on hwy 35 just north of the twin cities and also at Pine City. See you in June.

Mindan, cannot believe it has been 5 yrs since we were there.  will be at sunset 6/30 to try the lake out again.  Was great last time and should be better this time.  Is the water level high or normal?  see you then if you are up.

rmba, I would recommend that you stay on the Ash river trail. Staying at a resort on the trail gives you the option of fishing either Kabetogama or Namakan lake. There are 5 Resorts on the Ash river. The river is a no wake situation so if you decide to stay there you may want to pick a resort near the end of the no wake zone which would be Frontier resort. Other resorts to choose from would be Ash Ka Nam, Sunset, Ash Rivera and Ash Trail Lodge. There is also a house boat rental place known as Ebels. I have a seasonal camper at Sunset resort and it is a 10 min. boat ride in the no wake zone.

The ice went out of the Ash River yesterday. Usually The lake ice out is 10 to 14 day later. May be out for the opener yet. Only in the mid 30's today tho.

I'm going to be fishing Kab. June 16th thru the 23rd.  I'm staying at Nothethen Lights Resort for the first time.  I have been to Kab. fishing many times and have camped and fished the Lost Bay and Namakan areas.  I have heard the walleye, bass, and nothern fishing is good around Sugerbush Island?  Can anyone tell me if the fishing is good around the resort ?  A spot of two just to get me started would be very much appreciated.  I'm happy to share some good walleye spots in Lost Bay / Namakan if you are interested.  Thanks!

Google Kabetogama guide service and you should come up with all of them. A couple that I am aware of are Wade Watson and Tim Watson. Lure colors depend what you want to fish for. Pulling spinners for Walleye I prefer gold or one of the glow blades. Casting shorelines for Bass, I like to use a crawfish color spinner bait, light brown with a little orange in it. Actually any thing will produce Smallmouth as will topwater that first week in June. Live bait will out produce everything else most of the time as far as Walleye, Sauger and perch go. That early in the season I would use minnows or leeches.

Good luck Dan

Heading up for our first trip to Lake Kabetogama (Arrowhead Lodge) first week of June. Just had some simple questions about fishing on Lake Kab

What is the preferred color on the lake (Pumpkin/root beer/ etc)?

A name of a good guide or service. Only have 4 days. We know how fish but would like some info to use on the lake.

Nightcrawlers or leeches in June?? Live better than artificial?

Any advice is welcome -- THANKS IN ADVANCE

Thanks for the comments and advice guys.  Any other input on the mapping chips?  Am looking to make a purchase soon and would appreciate the sharing of first hand knowledge with the H-bird / Lakemaster combo.

I totally agree with the last post. You will love this beautiful lake and even at its worst, you will catch fish this time of the year. I am also going up that week and the next. Where are you staying? Possibly we might be at the same resort. I have been going here for 46 years. Sometimes it takes a little time to figure out the pattern, but when you do, you will have some of the most fantastic fishing of your life. A fresh walleye fish fry is one of the best meals you will ever have. Good Luck
