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.
