Fishing regulations are set by the MN DNR. Please consult the Minnesota Fishing Regulations for Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River page before hitting the water. From this page you can find the page you need! From winter or summer regulations or lake to river regulations. As for licensing many locations around Baudette can get you the proper licenses. Some resorts have that ability as well as the bait shops and gas stations. Please call ahead if you plan to buy your license in person to make sure they can assist you and get you out on the water as soon as possible. For limits check out this page Limits and Species of Lake of the Woods.
