Don't stay at a hotel - spread out for your ice fishing trip and stay at POV Lake Resort. Our fishing resort offers 12 studio and 2-bedroom (newly-renovated and professionally-cleaned!) ice fishing cabin rentals on the famed North Twin Lake of the Northwoods. POV has cabins directly on the lake - making watching your tip-ups that much easier. Hang with your friends and family and have the quintessential Northwoods wilderness experience! Come see why so many anglers return year after year to the area for a well-stocked lake, breathtaking scenery, and some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.
North and South Twin Lakes are one of the nation’s premiere ice fishing bodies of water. Wintertime jigging in the weed beds produces excellent results. These lakes offer tremendous opportunities for catching walleye, northern pike, crappie, blue gills, largemouth bass and smallmouth bass. Both lakes are located within the Nicolet National Forest. These northern Wisconsin lakes produce trophy fish year after year! POV has the best ice fishing resort shoreline in the Eagle River area. And yes, we we may be biased but check out our reviews - guests think so too.

For the latest ice fishing report on North Twin Lake, click here. We always recommend avoiding the pinch points between the island and the POV point on the mainland as well as the narrows between North and South Twin Lakes - water flow makes for thin ice.
Remember to be safe on the ice everywhere! Read - Flag Up! for safety and tips from the Wisconsin DNR. Always be aware that ice thickness can vary on the same body of water and follow all recommended safety precautions.
Phelps is home to three ice fishing tournaments every year, one on North Twin Lake. These tournaments are a fun way to get out on the ice and get to know your fellow fishermen better. Visit Phelps' Chamber Events Calendar for all of the details!
If you are just testing the waters of this winter activity, visit Phelps on the third full weekend in January. This is Wisconsin’s free ice fishing weekend every year with no license required.
