Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

44.9 is a number we wanted to see a few weeks ago

44.9 is a number we wanted to see a few weeks ago and is the water temperature today.  The water temp is dropping but slowly this year.  According to local myth 45 degrees is a big trigger for more Shiners and Walleye coming into the river.


Fishing this past week had its ups and downs.  We started off doing real well and the inconsistent winds and cold front changes may have impacted the bite.  The forecast for the week shows more of the inconsistent winds changing from north to south throughout the week.  The forecasted temperatures should guarantee a drop in water temp with low’s in the 20’s and highs only touching the 40’s.


We have had our charters fishing in the lake if they were able to but have spent most of the time in the river this past week. The lake has been giving up great action when the wind allows.  Anglers are sorting through many little ones to end up with fish for dinner and nice take home fish.


We are wrapping up another great season and will be closing the bar and restaurant on Friday November 1st and will reopen when the winter season begins.  There will be cabin rental available for the upcoming weekend at a discounted rate, 36.00 per night per person plus tax.  Winter dates are filling in, it’s time to make your plan if you don’t already have one!
