on Lake of the Woods

Is 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.
