We are enthusiastically waiting for Walleye Opener 2012! Opener this year is Saturday, May 12. We have had very good fishing the past three years and are looking forward to once again another excellent year here on Lake of the Woods. The DNR has done a great job at maintaining and growing our fishery over the years. Many long time guides continue to say they have not seen the fishing like this in years if ever. The walleye and sauger population is in great shape and continues to thrive. The large lake specialist, Tom Heinrich from the DNR said in a recent St Cloud Times article that the sturgeon population in his estimation is one of the largest in the country. We also have one of the highest trophy pike populations in the state as well. We are very happy with where the fishery is at and headed at this time and are looking forward to another great summer!
