Solon Springs and Upper Saint Croix Lake

The headwaters of the St Croix River, 855-acre Upper St Croix lake, contains abundant walleye, northern pike, bass, and panfish—plus the occasional brook trout, brown trout, or musky.  It has a shoreline of 9.4 miles, a maximum depth of 22 feet, and a mean depth of 13 feet.

The village of Solon Springs runs along the west side of the lake.  More homes and cabins are on the east side of the lake, with some areas that are undeveloped wetlands.

On summer weekends, this lake can see a fair amount of recreational traffic.  In the winter, it’s also popular with ice anglers and snowmobilers.  Even on weekends, however, the upper and lower parts of the lake tend to be relatively quiet.

If you enjoy canoeing or kayaking, you can paddle downstream to the Gordon-St Croix Flowage.  Or, if you like, keep going all the way to New Orleans.
