Lake of the Woods Northwest Angle & Islands Fishing & Outdoor Report Sportsmans Oak Island Lodge Oak Island, MN www.oakislandlodge.com 800-772-8411
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.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
