Lake of the Woods Fishing Report

The arctic temperatures have moved on for now. Fishing is good and fish cleaning houses are busy!  Ice roads permitting trucks and sleepers.  Walleyes continue to spread out and resorts and guides are making the push to deeper water. Dead sticks still hot in most areas with saugers but walleyes are preferring jigging. Spoons or lures with a rattles always a good bet in gold, glow, and pink. The bite for walleyes continues to be very good in 15-18 feet during morning and evening while 25-31 is better for midday saugers and walleyes. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered. 
 
 
The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice depth around the 20-26 inches in places where resorts are fishing. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Jigging spoons working well in the mornings/evenings while dead sticks with a jig and minnow taking over in the afternoons.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies in 30' holes on the Ontario side of lake. When done catching your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails across the lake are marked and groomed.
