Cass Lake has many islands to explore. One of the most intriguing is Star Island, which is a several hundred acre island with Lake Windigo nestled inside.

Many species reside in Cass lake including Black Bullhead, Black Crappie, Bluegill, lake Whitefish, Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, rock Bass, Tullibee, Walleye, Yellow Bullhead and Yellow Perch.

The lake water levels are affected by the operation of two dams on the Mississippi River. Otter Tail Power Company operates a dam upstream, just below Stump Lake. At the Cass Lake outlet is Knutson Dam, owned and operated by the U.S. Forest Service. The Leech Lake Band of Chippewa Indians operates a commercial fishery for lake whitefish and cisco on the Cass Lake chain. The only special angling regulation currently in effect is a ban on winter northern pike spearing for Cass Lake proper (excluding the remainder of the chain of lakes).

Cass Lake is know for it's great Walleye fishing. If your looking for a walleye lake you'll be pleased to know the walleye population of Cass Lake remains healthy and is comprised of good numbers of fish distributed among many different year classes. However, the 2003 gill net catch rate of 10.5 fish/net is currently below the long-term median catch rate of 13.3 fish/net. The historic data also indicate that overall walleye biomass was slightly higher during the 1990's than in 2002 and 2003. It appears that the slight reduction in overall population size may be due to the presence of two weaker-than-average year classes that currently make up the adult segment of the population.

There are three Public Accesses on Cass Lake. Two are managed by the US Forest Service. One is on the East Shore at Knutson Dam and the other is on the East Shore at Norway Beach. The third Access is managed by the Minnesota DNR and that is on the Southwest Shore. All three accesses are concrete.
