10.14.21 Fishing Report – Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau

Fishing Report

10.14.2021

On the south end…  A really good week of fall walleye fishing.  Big numbers of fish being caught.  It should only improve as water temps get cooler.  This fall has been unseasonably warm. Big numbers of walleyes and saugers are set up along the south shore and anglers are catching a lot of fish.

Most anglers are anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner.  Live shiners are available and effective.  There are still a lot of walleyes being caught on spinners with minnows surprisingly.  Trolling crankbaits has also been catching a lot of fish.

The best reports are coming from 18-28 feet of water across the south shore in areas such as Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach, Long Point and Rocky Point.  Various schools within these depths.

In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon and even a few crappies are in the mix for walleye anglers.

On the Rainy River   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River and more and more walleyes are entering the river each week.  Fishing has picked up but most believe when water temps reach the 40’s, it will get even better.  Currently, temps are in the low 50’s.

Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method.  Emerald shiners are tough to beat this time of year.

Some reports of big fish being caught, but not in big numbers… yet.

Sturgeon activity continues good.  A gob of crawlers and/or frozen shiners on a sturgeon rig (18 inch leader made of 60lb test, circle hook and a 2-3 ounce no roll sinker) is the ticket.  The catch and release season continues through April 23, 2022.

Up at the NW Angle…  Fall fishing up at the Angle continues to be excellent.  Most anglers are using a jig and minnow or jig and plastic.  Some strong reports with warmer than normal water of spinners with a minnow or plastic being the hot bait.

Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs and spinners are doing well.  Reminder, no live, frozen or dead bait being able to be transported over the border from the U.S. into Canada, consequently anglers boating into Ontario waters reporting various plastics on their jigs and spinners working great.

Various areas of structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 – 26 feet is the range depending upon the spot.

Big crappies are in their fall spots and being caught on jigs and minnows in 25-30′ around various structure.

Muskie anglers report good fishing overall.  Trollers reporting mixed results.  One day is great, the other not so much.  Covering water trolling is a strong fall muskie technique and should get better as water cools.

Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.

Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.

Duck Hunting Lake of the Woods  -received from Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau 9.22.21 to [email protected] 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DUCK HUNTING LAKE OF THE WOODS

It often gets overlooked.  After all, this is The Walleye Capital of the World and the fish are biting excellent both on the lake and in the Rainy River.  There are also hundreds of thousands of acres (no exaggeration) of public hunting land available to grouse hunters with plenty of birds around.  With all of those possibilities, the great waterfowl hunting, and in this case, duck hunting gets overlooked by many.  If you are a waterfowl hunter, you may want to consider a trip to LOW.

joe-henry-duck-hunting-camo                                    buffleheaddecoys-out-from-rocks

Water is everywhere, which means there are so many places to hunt.  Growing up in central MN, some of the better public hunting spots could be taken or crowded in many cases.  That problem does not exist in these parts.  In fact, having a few extra hunters on a huge bay can actually make hunting better as it pushes the birds around a bit more rather than them rafting up in the middle.

Some “go to” spots.

  1.  Four Mile Bay.  This bay is long and sits between the mouth of the Rainy River and Bostic Creek and the big water of Big Traverse Bay.  In addition to a good population of local birds, the northern flight will use Lake of the Wood on their migration and often stage here until the very cold weather kicks them farther south.  With access points at the mouth of the Rainy River (Wheeler’s Point) and various resort access spots on Bostic Creek, access is good.
  2. Bostic Creek.  This area of back water extends from Hwy 11 near Ken Mar Ke Resort all the way into Four Mile Bay.  There is plenty of backwater, cuts in the reeds, and area to set up decoys.  Some hunt the mouth near Four Mile Bay to get the birds coming off of the lake.  After a hunt or two, you will discover the key spots in this area.
  3. Zippel Bay.  About the size of an inland lake, long and narrow extending off of the main lake with plenty of duck friendly vegetation and cover, Zippel Bay is a favorite amongst many waterfowlers.  The bay splits into two branches when you get towards the back of the bay with many fingers and reed points to set decoys.  Zippel Bay Resort and Zippel Bay State Park both have boat accesses.
  4. Swift Ditch.  Again, a backwater coming off of the main lake with plenty of cover and a favorite place for ducks to stop on their way through.  Located west of Arnesen’s Rocky Point, this area bodes great habitat that waterfowl love.
  5. The NW Angle.  With thousands of ducks migrating through the area, the NW Angle can offer, if you hit it right, some of the most memorable duck hunting available.  Often times, some of the best hunting takes place off of a rock point or island sticking out into the lake.  You might find yourself huddled amongst the rocks for cover.  If it works out, a variety of diver ducks will whistle by offering the opportunity for a memorable shoot.  There are backwater spots as well, but most hunt the more open water with decoys.

One of the unique things about duck hunting this area is the wide variety of ducks.  Puddle ducks, divers and even a few sea ducks show up each year.  If you are an avid waterfowler, you recognize the enjoyment of identifying ducks in the area, listening for their different sounds and harvesting a wide variety that perhaps you don’t see back home.
