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.
