Wild Rice Lake

The 2,590-acre Wild Rice Lake Reservoir is used for water storage to supplement water flow in the winter for generating hydroelectricity at our facilities on the St. Louis River. Anglers at Wild Rice Lake Reservoir find crappie, bluegill, perch, walleye, and northern pike. Minnesota Power, with the Minnesota DNR, provides public boat access and accessible shore fishing at the reservoir dam. Because of the challenging shoreline, Minnesota Power provides one water accessible primitive campsites on the reservoir.
