Lake of the Woods Northwest Angle & Islands Fishing & Outdoor Report

Welcome to Fall!

Wow what a difference a week can make! From 70’s and 80’s to 30’s and 50’s! The weather has pushed the fish in high gear of transition this week. The fish are on the move! A little rain, wind, feels like fall.


The past week has been a spotty week, hard to find the fish when they are on the move. However, we did hear some reports that some nice walleyes were caught up by skeet in that area. The next few weeks ahead will start to see the fish move closer to Oak Island in areas around Falcon Island, Tug Channel, Massacre Island and Oak Island. Hammered gold spinners or gold, pink or glow in the dark jigs are all good lures of choice this time of year.


Slab Crappies

These cold temperatures are perfect for slab crappies. The upcoming weeks ahead will prove it. Where to find them? Well that is a secret only the guides know and won’t disclose.  Book a guide for even a day and reap the rewards of this sweet fish.
