Fishing At Lake Pepin
AKA: Lake City
Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, black crappie, walleye, sauger, bluegill, white bass, yellow perch and northern pike at Lake Pepin in Minnesota.
As a natural lake, encompassing a twenty-two mile section of the Mississippi River, Lake Pepin is a very popular 25,000-acre fishery. Set along the Minnesota-Wisconsin state border, there are 100-plus miles of shoreline. The lake is notorious as a fantastic smallmouth bass fishery, with lots of rip-rap shore which is ideal feeding areas for smallies. Walleye are also popular here. Crappie, perch, pike, white bass, sauger and sunfish round out the list of desired fish species. Two boat launch ramps serve the public on the Minnesota side. The Lake Pepin Boat Ramp is located in Roschen Park, off Lakeshore Drive, about mid lake. A second 2-lane ramp is located at Izaak Walton Park, off Maiden Ave, at the east end of the lake. Marinas, rental boats, camping and most any supplies and services are available at the lake.
