Sioux Narrows in Sunset Country
Sioux Narrows, situated on Hwy 71, south of Kenora is located on the eastern border of beautiful Lake of the Woods. The area abounds with native lore and artifacts. Around the 1750�s, the Ojibway defeated a Sioux war party and the narrows played an important part in the defeat. Today, the highway crosses the narrows at the battle site. Pictographs are still in evidence all over the region. For the fisherman, walleye, northern pike, muskie, lake trout, smallmouth bass, rock bass, pumpkinseed, bluegill, crappie and perch are plentiful. Imagine sitting in a boat on a calm morning. The loon cries out. You look up and there, on the shoreline you see the majestic moose. Maybe you see a deer or a fox. Wildlife is abundant in the area.
There are many resorts and lodges in the area and a variety of camping accommodations. Rent a house boat and navigate through the many waterways connecting the many islands close to Sioux Narrows.
Every August, Sioux Narrows hosts an Arts Festival. Artisans from all over the area, even from the States, come to Sioux Narrows, displaying paintings, pottery, woodworking and other arts and crafts. In September, you�ll find the majority of the people on the lake participating in the Bassin for Bucks Fish Tournament.
