Sylvan Lake - Are you looking for a great Minnesota fishing resort?
Try our Brainerd fishing resort!

Sylvan Lake is 803 acres and is located about ten miles from Brainerd Minnesota in southern Cass County. This Minnesota fishing lake has two distinct basins that are connected by a shallow channel. A public lake access is located on the east side of the north basin. Maximum lake depth is 57' and 46% of the lake is 15' deep or less. Shallow water substrate is primarily sand and gravel though areas of larger rock are present as well. The aquatic plant community is relatively diverse. Emergent plants such as bulrush and water lilies are important for shoreline protection, maintaining water quality, and provide essential spawning habitat for bass and pan fish species. Submerged plants provide food and cover needed by fish and other aquatic species.

Walleyes have been stocked periodically with the most intensive stocking from 1961-1984 as fingerlings. Sylvan Lake is currently part of a statewide MN DNR walleye research study designed to evaluate different stocking methods.
Sylvan lake produces typical catches for lakes with similar physical and chemical characteristics. Over 16 different species reside in Sylvan lake including Black Crappie, Bluegill. Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Pumpkinseed, Sunfish, Tullibee and Perch.
