Fishing Lake of the Woods - Booking a Trip
Booking a Trip

When you call us or email us, have a couple of possible trip dates picked out, as we may not be available for one of those times.  We suggest booking as early as possible to get the best choice of guide dates, and many of our groups will book a trip for next year before they leave.  We also suggest waiting to book your cabin until after you have secured your guide dates.  We require a deposit of $100 per guide day in advance to reserve us for the days you want to fish.

Fishing Lake of the Woods - Lodging
Lodging

There are many quality lodging options available on the mainland and islands.  We dock our boats at Angle Outpost Resort each night.  We enjoy working close to home, but we work with all the area resorts and will pick you up wherever you are staying.  If you are unfamiliar with the Northwest Angle and Islands area, we can assist you in finding lodging that fits you best.

Preparing for Your Trip

Fishing Licence Information

  • Get your Ontario fishing license ahead of time, either online or at the Shell station in Sprague, Manitoba on your way to the Angle.  This move will give you more fishing time on your first day.
  • If you’re not a resident of Minnesota, we don’t recommend buying a Minnesota license unless you definitely plan on fishing U.S waters as well.  Minnesota fishing licenses are available online and by phone, as well as at area resorts.

Passport

  • You will be driving through Canada to get to the Northwest Angle, and you will need a U.S. passport or an equivalent form of ID whenever you pass through Canadian or U.S. Customs.  When departing or arriving at the Angle, you will be using a phone system to report to customs.  Have your vehicle license number and passenger IDs ready when you call.  We also use the same phone reporting system each day we fish in Canadian waters.
  • Canada offers an RABC permit for around $30 per person or family, which eliminates calling Canada customs each time you depart the Angle.  If you are fishing for several days, this permit can be worth getting, but is not necessary.

Essential Gear

  • Here is a short list of essential items our guests often forget to bring along:  raingear, extra drinks, sunblock, tackle, and cash for any Canadian purchases.  Also plan on packing for warmer and cooler weather than what you are expecting.

Location Details

  • The Northwest Angle is located 60 miles north of Warroad and Roseau, Minnesota, and about 100 miles east of Winnepeg.  Use “Angle Inlet, MN 56711” when you are searching for driving maps or directions for your trip.
