Pehrson Lodge's on-site fishing guide, Jarek

We are fortunate to have some of the most experienced Lake Vermilion fishing guides fishing out of Pehrson Lodge on a daily basis. A guided trip is the very best way to get to know the lake. Guides are on the water every day and know what the fish are doing. They will show you the most productive areas, depths and techniques for each species of fish you wish to target. Our guides are private contractors who we are happy to schedule for you.

Our on-site fishing guide, Jarek (pictured to the left), is an excellent option to get you on the fish. If you would like to schedule an outing with him, please contact the Main Office at Pehrson Lodge and we would be happy to help. There are also many other knowledgeable Lake Vermilion fishing guides, listed below.

Lonnie and Rob can provide a great guided BWCA experience. Trout Lake is a magnificent wilderness lake with a 25hp motor restriction. Trout is known for its lake trout, but it is also an outstanding bass lake and can be a good walleye lake. We can even schedule a split day to fish for bass/walleye for part of the day and switch to downrigger fishing for lakers for the remainder of the day.
