Lake of the Woods Fishing Report
« on: June 04, 2018, 02:26:20 PM »
Some great fishing going on right now in various places on the lake and many depths! Most anglers still using a jig and a minnow but trending towards pulling spinners and crawlers. Pulling spinners in anywhere from 5-25 feet throughout the day and evening. Jig and spinner colors, gold mixed with  bright colors such as chartreuse, yellow, pink and orange. 
Rainy River is still slower for walleyes. Some nice bass being caught along shorelines and docks. A good population of walleyes stay in the River year round. Sturgeon fishing keep season opens again July 1 - Sep 30.

Up at the NW Angle...  In Minnesota, walleye fishing with a jig and minnow or spinners bringing in limits of walleyes and saugers. Depth varies from 5-15 feet in the evening and 18-27 during the day. Chartreuse with gold and blue and white jigs. Canadian walleyes at 22-26 feet have been the most aggressive.
