Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

Sturgeon have been active

April 09, 2017 at 2:13 PM

Sturgeon have been active and there have been some really nice catch and release monsters.  We have heard of some in the 60-inch range but nothing hitting 70 yet.  The Walleye bite could be well improved with some cleaner water.  The water is appearing to be clearing up but not where we would like to see it.  Most of the creeks have broken free which gives us an indication it should be getting better in the days ahead.


Most Walleye anglers are heading to the lake, it is open about a mile out from both the Light House and Morris Point Gaps.  Water depth is not critical, it is mostly getting close to the ice.  As the big sheet of ice is breaking away from shore it will be important for boaters to pay attention to shifting ice.


The forecast is showing a duplicate of last week which was great.  Highs in the 50’s this week almost every day.
