Brown is a 76 acre, class 10 lake located in the interior of Voyageurs National Park. Brown Lake has a relatively simple fish community dominated by northern pike. Northern pike abundance has increased with each investigation to a high of 7.50 fish/set in 2004, which is higher than what is found in 75% of other class 10 lakes. Fish captured were generally small and growth was slow. Average weight was 1.9 pounds and length ranged from 7.3 to 27.1 inches with a mean of 20.3. The slow growth of northern pike was likely due to the high number of northern pike and limited forage. No other species of fish were captured during the investigation, including during seining. However, minnows and yellow perch were observed while traveling on the lake.
