The Fishing

Why should you choose to stay at Camp Waterfall?

We are conveniently located, within 2 hours of the U.S. border by road, and provide the opportunity to angle for 5 of the most popular species of freshwater gamefish on Blindfold Lake as well as Route, Bigstone, Storm, and Moore Bays in Lake of the Woods

We encourage the release of all trophy catches.

Rushing River flows into Blindfold Lake ¼ mile below the camp. Blindfold has miles of shoreline untouched by humans. It provides many inlets, bays, and islands for good fishing structure. Its narrow and twisty shape makes it a very safe boating lake. Blindfold Lake produces great northern and bass action, as well as large numbers of crappie. In June, the fast water below the Blindfold dam can provide a full day’s entertainment fishing from the shore for bass and walleye.

During May and June our guests use the tramway located 4.5 miles from Camp to access Route Bay for great walleye fishing in famous Lake of the Woods. Many groups enjoy shore lunch on one of the many islands you can access.

Most of the fishermen who stay at Camp Waterfall are independent types who do not want a guide. For new guests we can provide detailed navigation maps marked with suggested fishing locations, or we can recommend a guide service. You can bring your own boat, or rent one of our 14 ft aluminum with 15 hp units. Guests use our efficient fish-cleaning house and then store their catch free of charge in the freezer.
