While the wingdams in that area can hold fish, the wingdams around 494 are probably more consistent for walleyes. That said, the wingdams around 494 are also more heavily fished - especially in October and November. When the same wingdams get hit repeatedly, don't be afraid to try new areas.

The fishing is often slower in September, but will pick up through October and beyond. Note too that flows are lower than normal right now, and probably will be throughout fall (unless we get major rain). This will also change where walleyes are holding (wingdams and otherwise).

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.

      Yes fair amount of water/slop on the ice.  Would suggest getting houses jacked up prior to freeze.
