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

Sportsman’s Oak Island Lodge

Oak Island, MN



Solid fishing…

We have seen some real consistent and solid catch rates the past few weeks. Anglers catching six to twelve walleyes and/or saugers per person per day and keeping four to seven fish. Plenty of fish for a few good meals. We currently are seeing a nice run in the morning and afternoon to keep you busy at the depth between 23’-28’.


Hot tackle this week?

Gold is always a mainstay on Lake of the Woods and this week is no different however we also saw some nice fish this week caught on some gold spoons, white and blue jigs too.


Ice Conditions

We currently have good ice conditions. The current ice depth is around 32 inches in the areas we fish and travel. Our weather has been warming up into the teens and twenties during the day and single digits and below zero temps at night, perfect weather to keep the ice we have and make a few more inches too.   We plan to fish right thru mid to the end of March at this point.

Trail Conditions

Lake Trails
Excellent trail conditions this year. The weather and more than normal snow fall has really made the trails better than an average this year. Come enjoy it, we only have about a month and a half left.  The trails from Baudette to Warroad and Baudette to Oak Island are being groomed today and tomorrow. 

Land Trails

The groomers have been out all week getting the trails into optimum condition for the weekend in the areas of Lake of the Woods county.

Plowed road to island

The road is in good shape and continues to be plowed regularly.
