Lake of the Woods Fishing Report 4/20/15
The Rainy River continues to produce good numbers of sturgeon this week. Anglers have had good success at 4 Mile Bay, Wheeler’s Point, the International Bridge, and Clementson Rapids. Many boats are spread in between fishing their favorite sturgeon holes as well. A 4/0 or 5/0 circle hook with a gob of crawlers has been best with a 1-3 oz of weight. Fish the edges of deeper holes. Catch and release through April 23rd. Keep one season opens April 24th – May 7th. May 8 – 15, catch and release only.
Pike season is open all year and there are good reports of 40+ inchers coming out of Zippel Bay, Bostic Bay, and 4 Mile bay. Use a treble hook with a spinner blade and a dead cisco under a bobber. Try a couple of feet off of the bottom and actually laying the bait right on the bottom. Walleye season opens again May 9th.
