Ice Out…

We have water shore to shore all the way to the lodge and a decent size channel of water thru Four Mile Bay to the Gap on the south shore of Lake of the Woods. The boat landing at Wheeler’s Point access has a little shore ice, but there is an 8 foot area with no ice, so you could launch a boat if you wanted too right now. I would say that should too be gone by the middle of this week. The DNR will be putting in a dock as soon as the ice departs.

Soft water fishing…
The reports coming in have been ok nothing real spectacular yet, we are waiting on our water clarity to clear up a little before I think we will start to see some good reports come in. The water clarity doesn’t have real far to go, the water is not muddy just dirty and we have no real measurable precipitation in the forecast, actually no precipitation after tomorrow and tonight and tomorrow their is just a 40%-60% chance of minimal snow or rain. We have no more snow left on the ground, so there is not much run off left to go. By Thursday we should see the water clarity change for the better quite rapidly. Our temperature forecast looks like highs in the 40’s and lows in the twenties. We may have to see some higher temps to entice the walleyes into the river however the Gap would be an excellent place to try this week, which is just four miles away from Sportsman’s Lodge.

Nice long spring season……This is definitely early to have the river open like this and with the run off almost gone we could very well have a nice long spring fishing frenzy! Walleye season is open until April 14 and then northern pike and lake sturgeon thru mid May before the walleye season starts again May 15. You can catch and release sturgeon now thru April 23, harvest 1 April 24-May 7 and July 1-Sept 30 and catch and release May 8-15 and Oct 1-April 23. Keep in mind the River and Four Mile Bay do change walleye regulations to a limit of 2 as of March 1 thru April 14 and anything over 19.5 inches must be released.

More to come….
Watch for another updated report by Wednesday, March 24 unless something changes sooner! We have started our spring lodging special early; take advantage of $39 per person per night starting now thru May 27, based on double occupancy. Give us a call 800-862-8602 to reserve your room now, weekends are filling up.
