NW Angle/Oak Island and Lake of the Woods Fishing Report


NW Angle/Oak Island and Lake of the Woods Fishing Report


Midseason Bite: The best depth this week has been in 26’ of water. More walleyes than saugers have been found with the average size between 16”-19”.  A few northern pike and perch have also been caught this week.  Jigging with a chubby darters and buck shots have been the best tackle.  Vexilars are a great idea to bring along or rent, we notice an increase in fishing success using them.


Trail Conditions: The lake and land trails continue to be groomed 1-2 times a week. Get out and enjoy the trails today!  For more information about specific trails click here.

Lake of the Woods Oak Island & NW Angle Walleye Opener May 16, 2011



It’s Fishin’ Time

man’s Oak Island Lodge and Eagle Ridge this weekend. The afternoon and evening bite was best just off the shorelines around Oak Island and Flag Island. Some did well in 12′-15′ and we had others that did better a little deeper in the 20′ depth.  The best presentation to lure the walleyes in was a gold jigs tipped with a minnow.  It was a windy weekend but that didn’t hold back the walleyes from biting. Anglers were able to find plenty of sheltered areas that produced plenty of action.  Ontario walleye opener starts Saturday, May 21 opening up thousands more fishing opportunities. Summer is here! Grab your fishing buddies and come on up.
