Fishing remains good for the few anglers interested in the last remaining open water. Walleyes, saugers and some trophy walleyes are being caught in 14-30' of water in front the Lighthouse Gap and Pine Island on the south end of the lake. Some ice forming in bays but still too thin to venture out on.
On the Rainy River, walleye fishing remains good. With rain, more current this week. More walleyes and larger walleyes are showing up in the river. Good reports at various spots from Wheeler's Point to Frontier Access. The fish prefer jig and minnow still near bottom. Orange, and gold mixed with bright color the ticket tipped with minnow.
Up at the NW Angle, not many fishing as ice is showing up in spots. A thin coat of ice this week in backwater areas. Resorts are ready for ice fishing. Walleye action in 15-26 feet jigging near Oak Island, Rabbit Ears, and Hay Island. On the Ontario side, areas with current adjacent to deep holes best. Muskie fishing going well trolling in 10-20' adjacent rock walls
