Campsite Guests blessed us in sooo many way’s!!

What a beautiful gift from our Campsite Guests Jon and Maria! Oh my gosh, so touched by their gift! Jon and Maria joined us last night at “The Hawk” for the meat raffle. There were 8 of us and we were super lucky!! So, so fun!
Jon and Maria stayed in one of our sleepers in Campsite #2! They fished every day except yesterday because of the weather. Boy they had a good time! This is just some of their catches over the week. They enjoyed many meals of fresh fish! Thank-you so very much Jon and Maria!!

LAKE OF THE WOODS FISHING REPORT 10-1-2019

Fall Fishing at its Best!!

On the south end…  Great catches of walleyes along the south shore. There are various schools of walleyes in many locations.  A big school of walleyes still in front of Lighthouse Gap (mouth of Rainy River) in 24′ – 29′.  Anglers on fish in front of Zippel Bay, Long Point, Rocky Point and Garden Island.  Anglers having success anchored up and jigging.  Gold, orange, glow and pink hot colors with a live or frozen shiner.  Anglers going through a lot of bait catching all sizes of walleyes.

On the Rainy River…   Emerald shiners and walleyes are in the river.  Anglers are reporting catches from the mouth of the river at Wheeler’s Point upstream 42 miles to Birchdale.  Waves of walleyes move through periodically.  Jigging and pulling crankbaits producing walleyes.  Good walleye fishing continues in Four Mile Bay as well. Sturgeon anglers continue to catch good numbers of sturgeon.

Up at the NW Angle…  Walleyes fishing remains good. Garden Island, points with current, neck down areas and at mouths of bays where shiners are running.  Big schools of shiners showing up.  Jigging very effective as waters cool.  Crappie bite is good.  Muskie fishing remains strong.

Fishing Report
South end 
Another week of huge walleyes.  The winning team in a tournament this weekend had 5 walleyes for 50 lbs.  This late summer pattern is predictable and holding true.  Trolling crankbaits and drifting with spinners and crawlers in the main basin both strong methods.  Main depths are 30-34′.  Rotate sizes, colors, wobbles and trolling speeds with crankbaits until you get the ‘eyes dialed in. Have the camera ready and get fish back quick!
Rainy River
As most anglers are fishing the lake, there are 42 miles of beautiful, navigable river from the mouth to Birchdale with little traffic. Sturgeon anglers finding fish in deep holes. Reports of some nice walleyes, pike and smallmouth bass being caught up and down the river.
NW Angle
A strong week of walleye fishing up at the Angle. Fish being targeted in 19 – 28′ of water over mud adjacent to structure.  Spinners and crawlers have been the go-to with gold, pink and orange hot colors.  Perch bite picking up.  Muskie anglers showing some big fish.  Water temp, 72 degrees.
