Minnesota Northwoods Lakes
Three Island Lake
Often overlooked because of its small size, Three Island Lake is a true sleeper lake. The sixth lake on the Turtle River chain, it is two miles long and just half a mile wide, meaning it can be fished even when wind keeps boats off larger lakes. It has an average depth of 6 feet, a maximum depth of 30 feet and water clarity readings of 12 to 14 feet. It boasts a strong walleye population, both in numbers and size. It also is an outstanding large-mouth bass, northern pike and pan fish lake.
