Lake of the Woods Original Weekly Fishing Report!

The Permanent Houses Are Off The Lake!

Thank you all for another great winter season at Border View Lodge!  The staff enjoyed the season and all of the guests that make it such a wonderful place!

The change of season shows our ability to change colors like a chameleon.  If it is winter we get, it is winter we stay.  Until the spring actually starts we are still thinking ice fishing.

The ice is still in great shape! It appears that we will be able to ice fish until April 14th which at this time we plan to do unless the conditions change.  The bite has been good.  Without having our permanent houses we will be fishing outside with wind breaks.  The close to Pine Island bite has improved and we are expecting a great bite to happen.  Now that the snow is melting and we are getting current in the river it should get excellent!

Hot deals you ask!  Take 20% off of our winter fishing packages to ice fish for Walleyes in April.  Track vehicle transportation while fishing outside, no permanent houses.  The guides will be able to take you to where the fish are biting!

Birchdale has open water that anglers have been pushing in small jon boats for the last few days.  Open water fish has been doing well!  As far as the river being open we may have to wait awhile longer.  It is forecasted to stay below freezing most of this week.  A betting person would say that we are at least two weeks away from having open water in front of our lodge.  Each year is a little different some years it averages a mile a day, when other years it seems to all go at once.   Only time will tell.
