Lake of the Woods Fishing Report | Monday, July 29, 2019

South end 

A great week of walleyes.  As we approach the Dog Days of summer, more anglers pulling crankbaits over big expanses of mud with success.  Drifting with spinners and crawlers also doing well.  Main depths are 30-34′.  Some big fish caught this week.  Reefs continue to hold walleyes.  On windier days, try the tops, calmer days, fish transition areas at base of reef.  Crankbait colors, gold, pink UV Firetiger, black.


Rainy River   

Sturgeon keep season continues till Sep 30 when it switches to catch and release.  Nice sturgeon being boated up and down the river.  Fish the upstream side of deep holes with a glob of crawlers and/or frozen shiners.  Resident walleyes being caught trolling cranks.  Smallmouth bass near rocky areas and bridges.


NW Angle 

Strong week of walleye fishing.  The area west of Little Oak Island still full of walleyes spread out over flats.  Troll cranks or drift spinners and crawlers.  Reefs and adjacent to reefs still holding fish.  Nice week of muskie fishing with pike being caught as well.
