“I have seen and caught more large muskies on Rowan than on any other body of water I’ve fished. Something BIG always happens at Nielsen’s Lodge!”

“I’ve been a guest at Nielsen’s for several years now and I’m never disappointed with the fishing or accommodations. When I’m not at Nielsen’s Lodge, I’m day dreaming about going back!”
~ BOB TRUMPY

“Rowan Lake has excellent cabbage beds, and hundreds of blow-downs and reed beds where big old largemouth are found. “Three- and four-pound bass were a common ‘mistake,’ when I went muskie fishing there with our oversized muskie baits.” Rowan Lake is a large, unique, fly-in fishery with very little fishing pressure. And most of that is for the incredible muskie that reside there. Imagine fishing a lake where the majority of largemouth bass have probably never seen a lure before.”

More than muskies, Rowan means lakers, walleyes, bass and northerns, too!"–Dan Johnson, North American Fishing Magazine / TV

If you’re like me, and love to fish muskies, but would like to get away from the all too common scene these days of having to wait for a “spot” to open up on your favorite lake, I strongly suggest visiting Don and Lynn up at Nielsen’s. A tiny hop in a float plane and you’ve got thousands of acres of some of the best musky water in the world literally all to yourself!"–Larry Dahlberg, Hunt for the Big Fish TV

We can't wait to come back next year. Rowan Lake is one of my favorite lakes. I'm not sure where else a 11 year old kid can boat 4 muskies (1st year) and 3 muskies (2nd year) each in a 4 day trip. The new 20 hp motors really helped us cover more water.....and not be late for dinner!"–Paul and Riley Veith, Minneapolis, MN

Don – You guys have created a wonderful secluded environment at your lodge, and this little comment card is not near enough space for JoAnn and I to thank you for your warm and sincere hospitality. Everyone has been so nice & helpful and interested if we are having a good time. It has been the most pleasurable vacation of our lives, and you haven’t seen the last of us!"–Joann and Phil Hilliard

I fish a lot of lakes here in Minnesota, but my muskie fishing highlight each year is up on Rowan. I've made many trips to your lodge over the years and again I was amazed at the fantastic job that you and your staff do. Those new 20hp motors worked great and thanks so much to your guides for taking the time to help the kids in catching all those smallies off the dock!! Our two boys casted for muskies all day and evening and they couldn't wait to get back to camp to fish those bass off the docks....it's in their blood!"–Mitch Albers, Minneapolis, MN

Thanks so much for a most enjoyable stay and fishing experience at your lodge last week. The outpost cabin was exactly what we were looking for and even exceeded our expectations. The cleanliness and organization of the lodge, deckhouse, bathhouse and our cabin was impressive, and appreciated. And thoughtful things like the ice and storage bins for our beer and fish and the shore lunch sports with cookers and propane made things that much nicer and more enjoyable. You and Lynn run a first rate camp and it really shows!"–Brad Lucas Fishing Party

I have been fishing at Nielsen's on Rowan Lake since 1987.  The only thing I hate about the place is having to leave at the end of the fishing trip.   Not only does the lake harbor monster, world class muskies it also has great lake trout, good bass and northern pike fishing and three good walleye lakes just a short portage away.  The accommodations are second to none and the scenery just keeps beckoning me back.  Jump in the plane and make some fantastic memories!!"–Ray Gildow, Author of the fishing book Legends & Legacies, A History of the Nisswa Guides' League

The accommodations are alway flat out the best!  Every aspect of your camp is organized, spotless and beautiful.  The both of you always go out of your way to make those around you feel special.  Your actions speak louder than words and can easily be seen in your dedication and love for your camp.  From bringing in fuel in late winter/early spring, to cleaning rooms, doing laundry, mowing the yard, mopping out boats, the wonderful meals you serve - all you have to do is look around and you see how much you care!"–Dan Kosmoski, Men's Head Basketball Coach, St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN
