Lake of the Woods Northwest Angle and
Islands Fishing Report

Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge



Plenty of walleyes hanging around waiting for you! Anglers are starting to move a little further out into more structure in the recent days, but their has been no changes in the fishing, that remains solid! 15’-22 of water just 4-5 miles out into the islands of the Northwest Angle have produced the best walleye catch rate this past week.

The hammered gold spinner with a minnow is still the bait of choice; however crawlers and leeches will soon be an item to have in the bait box soon. Many walleyes in the good eater size range of 14’-19” have been caught lately. Muskie season officially opened this past weekend, but normally the best Muskie season will be starting mid July right thru October. However, we have heard lots of reports of some hungry Muskies following walleye presentations in the past week, so who knows now may be the time!
