We have lots of activity going on at the lodge today. The painters just finished painting the entire outside of the lodge. It looks great with a fresh coat of new paint. We also added a brick accent along the dockside and roadside of the lodge along the lodge rooms. Fishing has been great! Lots of nice walleyes are being found this week. The guides are hot on the walleye trail. Check out more information in our fishing report section.
Our entertainment line-up is in full swing in the Sandbar. Thunderfoot is entertaining now followed by musical entertainment, mostly live bands every weekend through September. The bands play 9pm-1am. We also have pull tabs, daily drink and food specials and a great view of the Rainy River to watch the boats come in. Guests have been enjoying the pool and hot tub this week too. The pool depth ranges from 3 feet to 9 feet. Lots of room to swim and relax. The gals in the gift shop just stocked some more souvenirs and clothing this morning. Stop on by for a hot piece of tackle, a walleye whistle, sunglasses, souvenirs and our new summer wear.

The nights are getting cooler and the days are getting longer here in the north woods of Minnesota.
The nights are getting cooler and the days are getting longer here in the north woods of Minnesota. You can definately tell Fall will soon be here. We have once again had another incredible year of fishing on Lake of the Woods. It is great to have such a healthy lake to enjoy. Area bear hunters have been busy getting their spots ready, bear season opens up tomorrow. It won’t be long and the early goose, grouse and duck season will be here as well. The annual Lake of the Woods Duck’s Unlimited Banquet is scheduled for Sept 10 here at Sportsman’s Lodge. Tickets are limited so give us a call asap if your interested in attending. Over $8000 in hunting merchandise and guns will be given away. This event is always a good time and has relatively small attendance in comparison to many big city events so your odds of winning are pretty good.
Our fall rates start Sept 6. Lodge for just $39* per person per night through Nov 30. Fall is a great time for some good walleye, sturgeon and pike fishing at Sportsman’s Lodge and walleye, pike, muskie, bass and crappie at Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge. No boat? No problem! We have guides and boat rentals available. Relaxing in a boat in a quiet atmosphere surrounded by beautiful fall colors. AAhhhhh. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Have a great day everyone! Hope to see you soon!
*Rate is for Sportsman’s Lodge Rainy River location and is based on double occupancy plus tax.
