My name is Thatcher Haggberg and I own and operate a fishing and hunting guide service in Nestor Falls, Ontario. Nestor Falls is located on the eastern shores of Lake of the Woods, 1 hour north of International Falls, MN. It is 12 hours from Chicago and only 6 hours from Minneapolis.
I started guiding at a young age of 14, started my own guide service in 2007 and now have over 20 years of experience. My grandfather owned a resort in the area and was also a guide. My father also guided for 30 years and was owner operator of one of the local bait shops for 14 years
Most of our fishing is done on Lake of the Woods. This lake is massive in size, 14,552 islands, covers 1,679 sq miles, and has 65,000 miles of shore line counting all the islands. Being that LOTW is so large, we fish Nestor Falls Sabaskong bay, town of Morson west, North to Miles Bay area and also Whitefish Bay area fishing for Walleye, Crappie, Northern Pike, Muskie, Perch and Lake Trout. Also, there is crystal clear Crow Lake that offers lake trout, muskie, and smallmouth bass.
In the winter we fish for crappie, perch, walleye, northern pike, and lake trout. We have many options for ice fishing; fish in a warm ice shack that you can drive your pick-up to, or enjoy a scenic snowmobile ride through the area and fish remote portage lakes.
Full day, half day and evening trips are offered for fishing. I also offer hunts for black bear, moose, whitetail deer and the illusive timber wolf.
Nestor Falls has some of the best accommodations around. From cooking your own meals, to all inclusive resorts, camp grounds and several hotels. With several resturants you will never go hungry.
Come check out our area and let's catch some fish and enjoy the outdoors!
