On the south end… Excellent week of summer fishing. Jigging with frozen shiners or leeches effective as is drifting spinners with crawlers. Main depths are still 29-32′. Basin is starting to load up with walleyes, some nice fish this week on crankbaits. Various bites happening from structure to mud, from east to west. The key, find the fish.
On the Rainy River… A mixed bag for anglers fishing the river and Four Mile Bay. Pulling spinners and jigging depending upon if you are covering water or fishing a spot on a spot the ticket. Some walleyes in Four Mile Bay along river channel edge. Smallies still coming from rocky areas, weed beds and bridges. Sturgeon keep season July 1st – Sep 30.
Up at the NW Angle… Great week of walleye fishing. Drifting spinners west of Little Oak still producing combo of eaters and slots. Hammered gold and silver blades strong. As summer progresses, some walleyes still on structure, some over mud. Jigging and pulling spinners on and around reefs in 16-24′ producing walleyes in Ontario. Good fishing continues for smallmouth bass, big pike and muskies. A complete list of lodging and fishing packages available at www.LakeoftheWoodsMN.com/Lodging.
