Lake of the Woods Fishing Report | Monday, September 2, 2019

South end

A great week of walleye fishing with many hints of fall.  Good numbers of walleyes staged along the south shore in 28′ – 31′.  With some shiners starting to run, walleyes are being caught near Lighthouse and Morris Point gaps.  Spinners and crawlers and trolling crankbaits most effective.  Some anglers anchored and jigging with success.  Some live shiners are available.

 Rainy River

 Emerald shiners are showing up in the river.  Numerous reports of some nice walleyes being caught in Four Mile Bay and various parts of the river.  Most common depth, 14-16′.  It seems like the fall run is just starting.  Snelled spinners and jigging the go-to method.

NW Angle

Walleye fishing solid up at the Angle.  Fish being in Little Traverse Bay, on flats amongst islands and in funnel areas between islands.  Spinners with crawlers or minnows are still the go-to presentation with gold and orange hot colors.  Pulling crankbaits and jigging also catching.  Crappie and perch bite picking up with water starting to cool.  Muskie anglers still producing big fish.
