Default Lake of the Woods Fishing Report | 7.8.2019

On the south end... Walleye fishing is excellent. Healthy mix of eaters (under 19.5"), slots (19.5 - 28") and overs (28"+). Jigging with frozen shiners or leeches super effective. Drifting spinners with crawlers also producing nice walleyes. Main depths are still 29-32'. Gold mixed with orange, pink or chartreuse strong color choices. Some walleyes coming on crankbaits.

On the Rainy River... Sturgeon keep season July 1st - Sep 30. 1 per calendar year 45-50" or over 75". Positive reports from sturgeon anglers. Walleyes relating to holes in river, current seams. Smallies in rocky areas, weed beds and bridges. Pike on edge of weed beds. 42 miles of navigable river.

Up at the NW Angle... Walleye fishing remains excellent. Mayfly hatch nearing end. Drifting spinners west of Little Oak producing combo of eaters and slots. Jigging and pulling spinners on and around reefs in 13-20' and around islands producing walleyes in Ontario. Smallmouth bass being taken on cranks and spinnerbaits over rocks. Big muskies caught and released this week.

Default LOW JUly 20 - 27

Fished out of Totem. Had to go west past Yellow Girl. Fish were not that easy to find, but when we did it was great. Humps did not produce for us, but points did - wind blowing in. Minnows and Leeches vertical jigging. Burned a ton of gas getting west. Fished all around Chisolm and even west of that. Went out early and in listening to guides morning on the humps might be better. 22' for us. Some said 20 - 30'. Water temp was 72. Most guides stated the season was different this year. Maybe a little behind. Not sure when the mayfly hatch was. The area was not crowed and we really never had anyone fishing close to us.
