Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

The river is open all the way to the lake

The river is open all the way to the lake.  There is open water on the lake past Pine Island.  We remind anglers to use caution when going on the lake in their boats while there are still large amounts of ice present as it can get pushed around and trap boats.


The bite started off excellent this week and now there is some muddied-up water in the river which slowed the Walleye bite.  The best action has been nearest or on the lake.  Looking at the limited amount of snow left on the ground there is a chance for the water to clear up by next weekend which should return the great action.


We have special spring rates on our cabin rental available through Walleye opener for Walleye and Sturgeon fishing.


Again, the forecast is showing great weather for April with highs in the 50’s this week almost every day. It appears the ground hog guessed incorrectly this year.  Although, it seems many in Minnesota do not have a problem with an early spring.
