At 345 square miles wide (894 km), Rainy Lake straddles the border between the United States and Canada. The lake is currently a hot spot for sport and recreational fishing of fish such as walleye, northern pike, muskellunge, largemouth and smallmouth bass, which are all considered excellent freshwater sportfish, and hunting for deer, bear, and an assortment of waterfowl species. Rainy Lake is also home to the Canadian Bass Championship, which has occurred every summer since 1996. The lake is dotted with many small islands on both the Canadian and American sides that contain numerous fishing cabins, small fishing resorts, and vacation homes, making tourism an important part of the local economy.
