Fishing Experiences

Totem Resorts will provide everything you need to achieve the best fishing experience ever with the opportunity to land your catch of a lifetime!


It is no secret that Lake of the Woods is a huge area of untouched, natural wilderness. With over 65,000 miles of shoreline and over 14,000 islands, we have everything you need for a successful hunt. You will not be disappointed with the rugged beauty, the quality of the hunt we put on, and the effort we put into your hunt to make it the trip of a lifetime!


Looking to take on a unique challenge? Our guests have the opportunity of catching a musky, one of the most elusive predatory water species in North America. They are commonly known as "the fish of 10,000 casts."


Lake of the Woods is one of the very few places where you can catch 80-100 walleye daily!
Your chances have never been better to land a 30”+ walleye on some of the most pristine fishing territory Canada has to offer, alongside one of our pro-staff fishing guides.


Smallmouth bass are a popular game fish sought by anglers throughout the area. The smallmouth bass is potentially the toughest fighting fresh water fish in North America.


Northern pike are from the same family as the musky, and grow to a substantial size in this area. Anglers typically are in search of the "Trophy Pike" making for some fun competition among friends.
