Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

Spectacular Opening Weekend

May 13, 2018 at 11:07 AM

Spectacular Opening Weekend! This may be the best weather on opening weekend we have ever had.  Those fishing closer to the ice on the lake noticed a significant drop in temperature.


Anglers have been up river, in Four Mile bay and on the lake.  There was a little bit of ice left on the lake but should not have hindered anyone’s fishing.  Anglers were catching Walleye on a regular basis, many little ones and slot fish with plenty of eaters.  Most were having success in Four Mile Bay or on the lake. The water level is still low, we could use some rain, but will not ask for it as it may then never stop. 


Anchored with a jig has been the best approach. As usual, gold, chartreuse and pink have been good colors.


We will still be tending to some of the landscaping around the new deck.  The new deck should be ready for opener.  We have the new deck furniture staged and ready. The bait house materials are still a little behind.


The week ahead looks like more great weather with highs in the 70’s and plenty of sunshine and lows in the 40’s overnight.
