Fly Fishing


Nestled in Northstar's mountainside, Sawmill Lake is a private secluded 10-acre reservoir stocked with hundreds of bright, fighting rainbow trout. Reserved for catch-and-release fly fishing only, Sawmill is the perfect lake for guided float tubing or shoreline stalking.

Fishing at Sawmill Lake is limited to four rods at a time and reservations are required. Fishing days can be reserved by phone or email. You must be confirmed by pre-payment. There is a guide on-site daily to provide helpful hints. The lake can be booked for large private groups as well. 

Please note, poaching or swimming is not allowed.

For more information or to make a reservation, please email us anytime or call between 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. daily at 530.541.8208.
