Lake Belle Taine
clouds and lakePart of the famous Mantrap Chain, Lake Belle Taine is seven miles long, marked by bays and inlets and connected by river to other lakes in the chain. Water clarity and quality are excellent, and the lake abounds with walleyes, northerns, crappies, sunfish, bass and muskies. It’s also home to a host of waterfowl including Minnesota’s state bird, the loon, whose haunting call wafts across the waters at dawn and dusk. Watch for the nesting pair of eagles fishing to feed their young!
