Welcome to our Northwest Angle Home Page
The Northwest Angle is a very unique destination. It is located in the United States, but you have to drive through Canada to get here. The border crossing is different here, so we recommend a quick online search to see the latest information for crossing the border here. Most people come here to fish and the fishing is very good in the Northwest Angle.
Learn About the Fish
Primary Species of Fish
Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Walleye & Muskie
This area is home to some awesome fishing. You can find good numbers and trophy smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye and muskie in the Northwest Angle on Lake of the Woods. Some anglers report the better fishing will be on the Canadian side of the lake, but there is plenty of good fishing available on the Minnesota side as well.
Secondary Species of Fish
Largemouth Bass, Crappie & Perch
Largemouth bass, perch and crappie are secondary on Lake of the Woods. Anglers will most likely run into a perch or crappie before a largemouth bass, but don’t be shocked if you run into any of these fish while here on a trip.
