Well we are finally seeing the effects of 4 inches of rain in 4 days. The Rainy River has slid up its banks and has raised about a foot. With all the extra water it has cleaned the banks of all the feeder creeks and rivers, and is creating a mine field down the river and into the bay. Please use cau

I fished in it. It was a very tough bite. We ended up catching our only fish with about 15 minutes left of the tournament. The fish were just starting to come into the shallows on Sunday with the sun and warmer weather. Only 11 teams weighed fish in. I think this weekend will be a very good we

The Lake of the Woods fishing reports found here are furnished by Lake of the Woods resorts, Lake of the Woods Fishing Guides, Fishing Charters, sport fishermen and ice fishing enthusiasts at HotSpotOutdoors.com.

Please bookmark this page and visit whenever you need current lake of the woods fishing reports and fishing reports for the Rainy River. Best known for walleyes and sauger but perch, crappies, muskies and pike can be world class as well.

Here is a sample from the Lake of the Woods ice fishing reports:

 

“Fall fishing remains strong!” The big storm from last week that blew through here, stirred up the water and made fishing a bit more difficult. But Lake of the Woods isn’t called the “Walleye Capital of the World” for no reason, and it wasn’t hard for our guides to find the fish again!

Some charters headed up north between Stony Point and Garden Island and were productive there. 2-3 miles outside the Gap in 28-32’, anchored and jigging did the trick for some anglers. Brightly colored jigs (gold, pink, chartreuse, and orange) seemed to be the ticket. Jigging on the rock in front of Zippel in 14-16’ is better for walleyes, and 18-20’ better for sauger. The rocky areas by Long Point and Twin Islands are producing. Fishing in the rocky areas seems to do better with this dirty water.

“How about that Rainy River fishing?” The shiners are running now, and some big fish are following. 16-28’ of water depending on what time of day you are fishing. This last weekend, Borderview Lodge held a Rainy River fishing tournament, called the Chili Bowl. In this tournament you were only allowed to keep fish between 14 and 19.5 inches. This was not a problem for many tournament participants! Multiple boats brought in six fish in that 18’ range. Even if the wind is blowing, you can still catch some awesome fish in the Rainy River!

Heading up North to the Northwest Angle, fishing is good for all species! No matter what you are looking for, walleyes, crappies, northerns, muskies or smallmouth. Numbers and size are all coming in. The weather has been colder and this has dropped the water temperature down to around forty degrees, and the crappies really seem to like this! Crappies are being caught in 30-50’ feet of water. Jigging for walleyes has been all season, and still is doing well in around 30’ of water. That’s not to say that you can’t find them in many other depths! Muskie fishing is still doing well, and some big ones are being caught trolling large cranks in 20-40’ of water.

We hope you enjoy the Lake of the Woods Fishing reports you can find linked here.
