Lake of the Woods Fishing Report | 3.11.2019

South end

Great reports continue to come in for walleyes and saugers. Many of the resorts have moved closer and are within 5 -6 miles of shore.  Lots of snow on the lake, best to stay on resort roads or trails.  Morning / evening bite continues in 15-20′.  Pike action has heated up with many fish over 40″ caught this week.  Should only get better. Fish houses on ice through March 31, walleyes open through April 14, pike season open continuous.  Thick ice, extensions needed.  Resort houses available with good ice.  Ice roads open.

Rainy River

A strong current in the river this year and a lot of snow.  Snowmobile trail on the river is open and marked from Baudette (downstream from the bridge) to the lake.  Stay on the trail for safety.

 NW Angle

Excellent reports continue from the Angle.  Walleyes coming from 22-30′.  Saugers and jumbo perch mixed in.  Jig one line, second line dead stick with a plain hook with a live minnow.  If snowmobiling, lots of slush off of the trail, stay on trails.
