Widewaters Camping Area
Located approximately 12 miles south of Wetmore, Widewaters Campground (46.21944 -86.62833) is the perfect base camp for your fishing adventure!

Au Train River & Lake
Another diverse fishing option is the Au Train River and general Au Train Recreation Area. Fishing can start as far south as Forest Lake. Enjoy fishing the Au Train River, where you're sure to get into trout of several species. Make your way to Au Train lake and launch your boat at the newly upgraded boat launch and Au Train Lake Campground. If you're into kayaking and fishing, the Au Train River paddle is a great opportunity to fish on your way out to Lake Superior! Click the link for more information on the Au Train Campground!.
