Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

We are often asked, when is the best time to come Walleye fishing?

August 04, 2019 at 9:46 AM

Its August already!  Fishing has been fantastic; we have had a great number of large Walleye caught and released this past week.  Many anglers are getting their personal bests.  We are often asked, when is the best time to come Walleye fishing?  Right now, is about as good as it gets!  We anticipate the bite to remain like this for a few more weeks.  When the daylight hours start to decrease and the temps cool things down the bite will change again.  We still expect it to be strong, but not as frequent with the number of large fish.


We have had some warmer weather this past week with heat indexes in the upper 80’s and 90’s.  To remind everyone, when it is this hot we will not do shore lunches.  The potential for unsafe conditions is not worth the risk.  And typically, when it is this hot the bugs make it a miserable experience.  We look at the forecast and the fishing trend each day to decide if it is an option or not.


We still have some space available in July and August and we expect an awesome bite all summer long.  The World Poughing Contest is coming up at the end of August!  Check out the Tourism website for more details.
