Fishing Report 10/14/2019
On the south end… Fall walleye fishing remains very good. Walleyes are staged in front of the Lighthouse Gap (mouth of Rainy River), Morris Point Gap, Zippel Bay area and Long Point in 16′ – 24′. Best method is to anchor up and jig with frozen shiners. Jig colors in gold, pink, glow, orange or a combo of these colors working well. Limits of eater walleyes and saugers common with small, slot and trophy walleyes mixed in. Jumbo perch in the mix as well. Anglers targeting pike finding good success with some big fish.
On the Rainy River… Nice walleyes and saugers still coming out of Four Mile Bay in 12-16′ of water. Up river from Wheeler’s Point strong current, fish congregating in areas with current breaks, often closer to shore or holes in river. 7-16′ depending upon the spot. River anglers finding walleyes. If fishing in current, have big jigs, 3/4 oz -1.5 oz if in the main channel. Some slot and trophy walleyes caught this week. Sturgeon anglers reports are good also.
Up at the NW Angle… Walleyes have the fall feed bag on. Neck down areas, points and mouths of bays continue to hold good fish. Jigging continues to be the go to method. Crappie anglers being rewarded with good slabs. Muskie fishing remains strong as is typical with fall. A complete list of lodging and fishing options available at www.LakeoftheWoodsMN.com/
