The ice is slowly shrinking away around the lake and its islands. Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge is closed at this time, but with warmer temperatures starting tomorrow and rain early next week, we are hoping to be open within a week. Travel around the south side of the island is not possible due to ice surrounding the island and in Young’s Bay.*

Watch Facebook and our weekly fishing report for updates on the ice and opening of Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge!

Now is the perfect time to plan your Sportsman’s Oak Island adventure! For more information, or to book your trip, visit us at or give us a call at 800-772-8411.

*Lake access and fishing is possible (and great) on the south side of Lake of the Woods. Check out the latest report from the south side here!
