Lake of the Woods has long been an angler’s dream. Its rocky shores, marshy inlets and sandy bay provide ideal fish habitats and a perfect setting for sport fishing. Anglers have many species to choose from, but walleye, northern pike and the ever elusive muskie are most often the subject of pictures and fishing tales. The traditional shore lbass logounch is a Lake of the Woods tradition you won’t want to miss. Nothing taste better than your freshly caught fish cooked over an open fire.
The town of Morson in Lake of the Woods Township offers some of Canada’s best lodges, resorts and outfittings where you can experience the great Canadian wilderness while maintaining all the comforts of home. If you are considering planning a fishing or hunting trip, be sure to make Lake of the Woods township your destination.
Hunting opportunities abound as the lush boreal forest of Northwestern Ontario possess the natural cover and food supply necessary to produce trophy animals. Outfitters can guide you to the backcountry areas where whitetail deer and black bear thrive. Here, you will also find quality hunting for timber wolves and small game. Lake of the Woods township is also on the migration flyway for many species of waterfowl making this a choice area for bird hunters. Duck and goose hunting is exceptional during the months of September and October. Ground birds such as grouse are also abundant.
For those not interested in hunting or fishing, there are many other activities to enjoy. Hike in Assabaska park, visit the Tomahawk Lighthouse in Morson, see the native ancient rock paintings, or enjoy a canoe or paddle boat rental from the Bergland cafe. You can also spend a day mountain biking, camp under a star filled sky, relax on the beach, spend hours bird sighting, or swim in the clean cool waters of the lake. One of the newest attractions to the area is the newly constructed golf course, Spruce Creek Golf Course, that adds to the already abundant activities available to this area.
