Great Week of Fishing Action

On the south end... A great week of walleye and sauger action on Lake of the Woods. Most ice fishing is taking place between 23 - 28'. Jigging one line and using a bobber with a live minnow on the other is the goto strategy. Popular colors this week... gold, glow, glow red, pink and orange. A lot of small fish to sort through to find keepers. Some big walleyes from 28 - 32 inches caught this week. A mix of walleyes and saugers with jumbo perch, big pike, tullibees and eelpout being caught as a rule.

On the Rainy River... Ice fishing on the river continues to be good overall. Mornings and evenings are producing the best walleye action. Ice conditions vary greatly on the river as there is moving water. Work through a resort for safety.

Up at the NW Angle... With the border closure, there are four ways to travel to the NW Angle without crossing the border. 1. NW Angle Guest Ice Road (open soon). 2. Snowmobile trails across the lake are open. 3. Lake of the Woods Passenger Service (bombardier). 4. Lake Country Air.

Angle ice fishing has been excellent with good numbers of walleyes being caught. Walleyes, saugers and jumbo perch with an occasional pike, eelpout, or tullibee is what anglers will see. Most fishing taking place in 20-26'. Communicate with your favorite NW Angle resort for specifics. A complete list of lodging and ice fishing packages available at
