Sportsman’s Lodge Rainy River

Reeling in some nice walleyes and a surprise too.

We had a dip in temps the last few days (yes, we actually saw some snowflakes yesterday! yikes), but it looks like we are in for warmer weather by the weekend.

Last weekend’s bite was pretty good. The wind kicked up Tuesday and Wednesday making it more challenging to get to the “ideal spot” but otherwise, we are seeing a mix of walleyes and saugers. Eater size and slots being caught along with some nice pike and a surprise 58” sturgeon nibbled at one of our guest’s walleye tackle this week. What a surprise! That is what makes Lake of the Woods so fun, you just never know what you might catch next.

Anchored with a jig and a minnow is the favored method along shorelines and in 10’-23’ right now. Gold, orange, and red has been popular colors. Check out some of the recent pics from our guests and guides. Water temp has been in the upper 50’s to lower 60’s lately.

Fins Rooftop bar is open for the summer and live entertainment is back!
