Ely has the honor of representing on this list all of the terrific fishing that the Boundary Waters that Northern Minnesota shares with Ontario, Canada, have to offer. Set among dense, dark forests and islands of Canadian shield rock rising from the pristine waters of these virtually innumerable lakes you’ll catch bass, walleye, and pike. And if you want to maximize your enjoyment of the tranquil woods of Northern Minnesota and the Great Lakes region, do it by canoe.
