Warroad Welcomes You to
Lake of the Woods!
Located on Highway 11, just five miles south of the Canadian border on Lake of the Woods, Warroad is ideally situated and equipped to offer you the opportunity to enjoy many activities in northern Minnesota.
The local residents like to say that Warroad is known for three things: walleyes, windows and hockey. And indeed this is the case. Warroad is currently the only American port on Lake of the Woods, making for quick, easy access to fishing on "the big lake." It is also home to Marvin Windows and Doors, a company known internationally for its quality products, corporate integrity and family heritage. Finally, Warroad's infamous moniker, "HockeyTown USA" boasts of its proud hockey legacy.
And Warroad is so much more! Not only does Warroad offer excellent summer fishing and ice fishing, there is also hunting and other outdoor activities for any season. Interested in exploring the region? Due to its central location on Lake of the Woods and Highway 11, Warroad can be a great "base camp," providing all of the necessary amenities for your adventures as well as comforts of town after you spend the day taking in all the area has to offer.
Warroad also has plenty of indoor activities such as shopping, swimming, and glow-in-the-dark mini-golf for the family. Win big at the Seven Clans Casino, catch a hockey game nearly any time of the year (be sure to check out our own Olympic "Hall of Fame"), or take in a production of the Warroad Summer Theatre.
These are just a few highlights of the many attractions Warroad has to offer. To help you plan your next vacation, we've provided a Lake of the Woods Bucket List. We invite you to check it out and look forward to serving you.

Coach Therese McBride accepts $400 donation for local Special Olympics
Shown here is Coach Therese McBride accepting a $400 donation for our local chapter of Special Olympics. The funding proceeds are from the Warroad Area Chamber of Commerce event the Monster Mash 5K held this past October. Coach McBride explained that there are 15 athletes that participate in the Special Olympics from Warroad. You must be 8 years old or older to participate and Warroad has now had a team for 25 years. Typically there are 2 sports that the participants are involved in. In the fall it is bowling and in the spring it is track and field. This year the event date is May 7th, 2014. The opening ceremonies are at 10:00 am and fans are welcome to join in cheering our local sportspeople on. Coach McBride would like to thank our business community as they are the strongest supporters of the events. If you or someone you know would like to volunteer please contact Therese McBride at 218-386-2922. The Warroad Area Chamber of Commerce would also like to thank Pat O'Loughlin for his hard work organizing the 5K events. What a wonderful cause!
Walleye season open until April 14. Pike open all year. Permanent fish houses out through March 31. Fishing still consistent in multiple locations this week. Fishing good in the mud 26-28 or 30-32 feet of water, showing lots of eater walleyes and saugers. Jigging with frozen shiner head and dead stick with live minnow best. Electronics helpful. Use bright colors, plain hooks, or buck shots. Up north by Knight and Bridges Islands, reefs still producing in 29-31 feet. Glitter gold, gold/pink, or pink/white the hot colors. Lots of big saugers in the mix with jumbo perch. With a timid bite, anglers are finding their own techniques to get the bite. Active pike in shallows 8-12 feet using tip-ups set 1/2 the depth. On the Rainy River and Four Mile Bay, walleye are officially in pre-spawn mode. Spring regs apply. Morning and evening runs the best near the mouth of the river, the airport, or East by Clementson Bay. Find deep pockets and jig near adjacent rivers. Up at the NW Angle, limits filled quickly with numbers of eater walleyes and saugers. 24-28′ best depth using gold, pink, chartreuse, or orange. Pike and perch active in adjacent spots. Good crappie bite in Ontario waters.
