Lake of the Woods MN Fishing Report
On the south end… Excellent walleye action continues along the south shore. Limits of walleyes and saugers in Four Mile Bay, Lighthouse gap, Morris Point gap, and along the south shore of the lake. The go to presentation is anchored up and jigging with a jig and minnow. Pink and gold strong colors. Some anglers trolling crankbaits and also doing well. Reports of fish in varying depths, but 15-25′ holding good fish.
On the Rainy River… Good numbers of walleyes still in the river and some nice fish being caught. Bright jigs and frozen shiner hard to beat. Strong current in river, thus heavier jigs necessary. Sturgeon season is closed until July 1st when it re-opens for the catch season again.
Up at the NW Angle… Anglers catching nice walleyes as water warms. Reports of nice fish coming from shoreline structure and areas with current. Most anglers using jig and minnow. Evening bite continues strong. Saugers, pike and perch were also in the mix. A complete list of lodging and fishing packages available at www.LakeoftheWoodsMN.com/Lodging.
