The Lakes

Minto Flats

Over 10,000 acres of Northern Pike heaven.

Navigate the sloughs and lakes in search of 40+ inch Northern Pike.

The action is fierce, the teeth sharp, and the fishing holes endless.

If it's Pike you desire, Minto is where you need to be.

Minto Gallery

Geskakmina Lake

Geskakmina Lake is surrounded by old growth Spruce, Alders, and Birch trees with the cabin nestled between them. The lake sits closest to Mt McKinley and offers the most in remoteness. Two options are in this wilderness getaway:  The fishing cabin (shown) or the newly added fishing lodge (pictures coming soon).  The Rainbow Trout and land-locked Silver Salmon are always hungry.

Dune Lake

The cabin at Dune Lake sits on the military crest which offers a beautiful view of the lake and surrounding terrain. On clear days, the mighty Mt. McKinley defines the landscape when relaxing on the front porch. Rainbow trout and grayling are prolific and the action non-stop. Landlocked Silver Salmon inhabit the lake as well.  This destination is a family favorite.  The sloping beach is great fun for small children.

Deadman Lake

Deadman Lake is located in the hills above Minto Flats. Rolling hills and tall trees surround the lake. Pike can easily be caught on spinners, spoons, and flies. Deadman Lake is my personal favorite for a couple's getaway.
