fishingpage_2Is that trophy walleye on your bucket list? Look no further… Lake of the Woods has them, along with northern pike, perch, muskie and bass. With 317,000 acres of Minnesota waters, Lake of the Woods is a fishing enthusiast's dream come true. This "super-sized" fishing hole is right out Warroad's front door.

Area resorts and fishing guides are happy to show you where the fish are biting. Whether you choose a spot on the open water of Lake of the Woods, or some place along the perimeter of the big water, you are sure to have an unforgettable fishing experience.

Lake of the Woods is accessible at the Warroad Point Park where there is plenty of free parking and fish cleaning houses. Fishing supplies are available in Warroad at the locations listed below.

You can download the official Minnesota Fishing Regulations on the Minnesota DNR web site.

Ice Fishing

As if the fishing in the summer wasn't good enough, once the lake freezes over, hardy anglers are in for a real treat. Walleye and pike are highly desired by many fishermen making the trek onto the frozen surface each year. Nothing warms a cold winter day in Warroad like the warm smile of a successful ice angler!

Ice fish houses and sleeper houses are available to rent from area resorts creating snowy villages on the icy surface of Lake of Woods during our long winter months. Lake of the Woods offers a variety of spots to concentrate on and a number of different fish species to entice onto your hook. Whether you prefer to venture out on the ice by yourself or in a group setting, there are many resorts, guide services, and fishing equipment businesses to set you up with everything you need such as licenses, equipment and bait.
