Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

First Week Of Walleye Season Was Fantastic!

May 19, 2013 at 8:10 AM

First week of walleye season was fantastic!  Many have reported that it was their best opener ever!

Males in the 16 to 18 inch range are plentiful in the Rainy River.  A one oz jig with a shiner will do the trick.  Gold and pink have been excellent colors.  Look for rubble on the bottom any were from 12 feet up to 5 feet of water.  The big girls can still be caught in the river, but the numbers of females are better on the lake and in the Four Mile Bay.  Both gaps, Lighthouse and Morris Point, have been on fire.  12 to 14 feet with a jig and a shiner is a good place to start.  Many of the females have been in the 27 to 32 inch range, and the vast majority has already spawned.

It looks to be cooler and breezy with chances of showers during the first part of the week.  The clouds give way to sunshine and warmer temps as we head towards the weekend.

We have some opportunities for midweek fishing and also have a few openings for your Memorial Day Weekend.  Make your plans to spend some time with us.  You don’t want to miss this!
