Lake of the Woods MN Tourism 5/26 fishing report!
Fishing Report 5.26.2020
On the south end… Anglers had an excellent week of good fishing and fish frys. A strong walleye bite continues with best success in 17-28 feet of water. It is good to remember, not all walleyes do the same thing. Some schools are deep, some shallow. Some may be feeding on minnows, others critters in the mud. Good reports in various areas along the south shore of the lake as well as Knight / Bridges Island area. Anchored up and vertical jigging a jig and minnow or frozen emerald shiner has been very successful. Gold / pink / orange or a combo hard to beat. Drifting with spinners and trolling crankbaits also catching fish. A nice mix of eaters, slots and trophies. Some big pike and jumbo perch in the mix.
On the Rainy River… Anglers caught some good walleyes in the river this week. Best depth 12-24′. Jigs and minnows working the best. The edge of the river channel in Four Mile Bay also giving up some walleyes. Smallmouth bass in good numbers. Typical spots, rocky areas, current breaks, bridge and rip rap areas. Some big pike still hanging out in bays. The sturgeon season is closed until July 1st when the season re-opens.
Up at the NW Angle… Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake and stay in MN waters. Some resorts are offering transport service across the lake in MN waters to the Angle prior to the border opening. Some guests are setting up with transport to follow charters in their own boats. Various south shore resorts are offering parking for guests of NW Angle resorts.
Fishing is great. Anglers fishing the Angle are catching good numbers of walleyes. Jigging rocky points in 10 – 22 feet of water producing nice walleyes. Some good fish also being caught on crankbaits in 8-12′ of water. Big pike in bays and creek mouths. Smallmouth bass in bays and shallow rocks.
