Dale’s on Lake of the Woods

Prime Fishing on Lake of the Woods

Fishing is all about catching fish and getting away from the daily grind. As dedicated lake people, we get it. We strive to provide each of our guests a relaxing, enjoyable fishing experience.

Dale's started as a simple idea by a dedicated fisherman to rent ice houses to those coming to winter fish on Lake of the Woods. The idea was a hit! We offer clean, comfortable ice houses for rent at reasonable prices. Our guests return year after year becoming friends and family.

We are a small business with owners Dale and Connie still at the helm. Our size sets up apart and allows us to offer personalized attention. We put our full energy into providing great customer service for our guests. If you have a question or have a request, simply ask and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

And Dale's continues to expand and improve. This year, we begin the exciting adventure into offering rentals year-round. Watch our News and Updates page for all the announcements. We aim to be open May 2019 for the fishing opener.

Come for a visit and see for yourself. You'll agree! Dale's is simply the best fishing on Lake of the Woods.
