Fish Lake Cabins are currently available. The lodge and café are still closed. It’s best to call ahead to confirm their most current status of the lodge and café: 541-949-8500 or check their Facebook page.

Ice thickness likely decreased last weekend with the warmer than average weather and rain, however this weekend looks to be a cold one, and should again make ice fishing a safer possibility. Folk should still be extremely careful if venturing out on the ice. Ice is was last reported at around 12 inches thick on Fish Lake and some folks were ice fishing last weekend despite the warmer weather. Anglers are reminded that a human-made ice hole can be no larger than 12 inches in diameter or length. It’s best to have an extended period of cold weather. 

The Hwy 140 webcam at Lake of the woods will give you a good idea of the road conditions. Anglers are reminded that a Snow Park permit is necessary if parking around Fish Lake.

Fish Lake was stocked with trophy trout in early October, and fall fingerling tiger trout.

Tiger trout, Chinook salmon, brook trout, and larger rainbow trout are available. Remember that tiger trout must be immediately released unharmed. Anglers are encouraged to report their catch of tiger trout to fish district staff at 541-826-8774 ext 234 or 226.
