At Cookie's on Upper Red Lake you can
experience fishing the way it was meant to be; in the quiet,
relaxing setting of the far North. We offer a comfortable house for
rent year round, a cabin from spring to end of deer season, and some of the most full-featured ice houses on
We have lived in Waskish since 2002, but I have fished Upper
Red Lake since I was a young boy. My great grandfather, Norman came from Sweden with his family in 1908
and settled on the shores of the Tamarack River in present-day Waskish.
My grandmother Olga was born in that same settlement in 1909. She lived
in Waskish for most of her life. Lake Norman, a small lake to the South of Upper Red Lake, that offers great duck hunting in the fall,
is named after my great grandparents.
