Welcome To Nisswa!

Many people will remember the beautiful paver patio that once was at the Nisswa Chamber building in downtown, Nisswa.  The patio served as the walkway from the building to the Paul Bunyan Trail.  Last summer, the old building was demolished, in preparation for a new Public Restroom/Welcome Center.  The new building was completed and opened in November, 2013. 

The paver bricks were saved and have been in storage.  The Nisswa Chamber will be putting those pavers back into the ground, around the new building; and have some other plans for adding to the beauty of the grounds around the trail and Welcome Center. 

The STEP BY STEP paver program is back by popular demand.  People can purchase a paver brick and have it engraved.  STEP 1:  complete a form with your contact information; STEP 2:  choose what you want the brick to say (up to 3 lines, 12-15 characters per line); STEP 3:  pay $100 for each brick (pay by cash, check, credit card).

Weekly Fishing Report 07/27/14

07/27/14 Fishing Report provided by Guide Nick Miltimore of Walleyedan's Guide Service:  

The bite has not changed much in the Nisswa Area the last couple weeks. Overall fishing continues to be very good. Gull Lake, The Whitefish Chain, and Round Lake continue to put out nice walleyes on those mid summer spots daily. We are finding fish along the windblown weed lines and out on the reefs and humps as well. 15-21 feet of water has been most consistent but we have found some fish deeper. An 1/8 ounce Northland Fireball Jig with a fathead has been my go to bait and is producing most of the fish. Lindy Rigs and redtails are also accounting for some as well though. Keep on the move until you find them with the electronics and remember to fish the wind. We have seen an increase in Pike activity and the Bass bite continues to be good on most area lakes as well. We are using rubber worms for the bass fished over the deep weed edge.

Good Luck,  Nick Miltimore - Walleyedan's Guide Service 218-839-5598
