Fishing 2019

Due to Spruce Island Camps location being as close to the middle of Lake of The Woods as you can get, there is an abundance of fish species and fishing opportunities close by.  Not to mention the low fishing pressure and boat traffic, unlike some  of the more populated areas of the lake.  Within minutes of leaving your dock you can find trophy Musky, Northern Pike, Walleye and Bass fishing spots.  One does not even have to leave the island as there have been many large fish caught from the shores of Spruce.
