Welcome to Minnesota’s Lake of the Woods, also known as The Walleye Capital of the World. The international waters of Lake of the Woods, the Rainy River and the Northwest Angle are famous for their fishing, hunting, wildlife and recreational opportunities.
This world class fishery features 317,000 acres in Minnesota for the best fishing anywhere, both open water and ice fishing. Sharing the lake with Canada, many of our guests who stay on the U.S. side choose to utilize both sides. Overall, Lake of the Woods has over 65,000 miles of shoreline and 14,552 islands.
A wide variety of lodging and guided fishing opportunities are available around the lake. Resorts, hotels, charter boats, guides, and in the winter, day houses and sleeper fish houses on the ice await visitors looking for adventure.
