One of the most exhilarating wildlife encounters you can have on Lake of the Woods is with a Bald Eagle. Often seen from a distance, once you have had the chance to see one up close, you will realize how big and magnificent these birds are. I recently had the pleasure of meeting a great photographer who has been able to capture this magnificence with some stunning photographs. Best of all he has posted them for all to see and enjoy: Eagles of Lake of the Woods
Just another reason to love Lake of the Woods.
A great new trail system ready for 2012. The Aspen Trail now has a trail head parking lot along Dubois Road, just north of Sioux Narrows. From here head off to the east on the 4.2 km (2.6 mile) loop that was completed last fall. The trail goes through many different forest types and landscapes and has boardwalks in all the low wet areas. This trail is also a cross country ski trail in the winter. Hope to see you out on the trails.
March 15 and spring is here?
Spring has arrived early and fast! Most of the snow has melted over the last week and the ice has started opening up under the bridge. Who knows how long the warm weather will last, many times we get some nice weather followed by a big snow storm. As for when the ice will go out, if this weather keeps up we could have one of the earliest ice-outs in recent memory. I will keep you posted. With what looks like an early spring now is a great time to start thinking about buying or selling, give us a call any time at 807-226-1024. We are looking forward to a busy spring season, as we have already had a busy start to 2012.
Bassin for Bucks 2011
The Kenora Bass International is on this weekend and hopefully we have another winner from Sioux Narrows. After Day 1, Matt Rydberg (Crawford's Camp), Brian McNanney (Indianhead Lodge) sit in second place and Dave Bennett (wildaccess.ca) sits in third place with his partner Mark Libitka of Kenora. After the KBI is over the countdown begins to our tournament here in Sioux Narrows, the 14th annual Bassin' for Bucks 2011.Avapro online//
Thank you to Nestor Falls Fly-in
A big thank you to Nestor Falls Fly-in and our pilot Kyle for a great flight yesterday. It couldn't have been a better day, and we got some amazing video and photos. As I update the site you will start to see more aerial photos of our listings. I got some great HD video with my new wide-angle lens for my i-phone and you can take a look at some of these on the listing page for the 17.5 acre island. What a truly spectacular location we are lucky enough to live in and enjoy, if you ever want to experience a flight like this give Dave and Michelle a call at Nestor Falls Fly-in Outposts.
A few pictures of the beach on Timber Island!

There will be sack races, three legged races, running races, egg-toss and more. In Nestor Falls, come out to Bass Lake park where celebrations will be going on all day with Fireworks at dusk. In Sioux Narrows the fireworks take place at the bridge at dusk. Hope to see you out on Canada Day! - Jake
