Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

Plenty Of Ice And Snow Still On The Lake

April 07, 2013 at 2:32 PM

It is that wonderful time of the year when open water and ice fishing meet.  Some groups are bringing their ATVs and their boats!

There is plenty of ice and snow still on the lake.  They are catching some nice walleyes in 15 to 18 feet outside of the gap and along pine.  This is primarily a morning and evening bite.

The river is now open near the Vidas landing where they are pushing boats across the ice.  Big boats are being launched at both Birchdale and Frontier landings.  They have been catching some big walleyes in the river.  It seems to be a matter of being at the right place at the right time.  Anglers have been using smaller jigs as there isn’t much current due to the slow melt. 

We have had reports of some monster sturgeon being caught.  Should be a great sturgeon season coming up!
