On the south end...  Fishing reports remain strong. Nice mix of walleyes and saugers with some big fish as well.  Watch for suspended fish coming through, often nice walleyes.  An occasional cold front can slow things a bit but most still catch fish.  Most resorts have fish houses out in 26- 30 feet of water.  Best colors, white, gold, pink, gold/pink, chartreuse and glow.  Some days the jigging line catches more, other days the deadstick with a live minnow 6" - a foot off the bottom does better.  Lots of sturgeon being caught this year, many more than normal.  Various ice roads are open, many allowing 1/2 ton trucks with smaller wheel houses.  Check ahead as ice road limits vary.  

On the Rainy River...   The river is frozen over but little traffic with higher than usual current.    Extra caution is always needed on the river, most sticking to lake so far.  No snowmobile trail on Rainy River as of yet with thin ice areas due to current.

Up at the NW Angle...  Resorts have fish houses out and initial fishing reports for walleyes continue to be good.  Some areas of ice still need time with high current.  It's a must to check with resort before hitting the ice.  Stay on marked trails or know the areas you are traveling.  The snowmobile trail from the south end up to the Angle are staked and open.  Caution near Minnesota Point as there are cracks, etc.  Check NW Angle Edge Riders or Lake of the Woods Drifters snowmobile club page for up to date info.

On the south end...  Ice fishing has begun!  Many resorts have fish houses out with others watching ice conditions in the area they fish for the right time.  Below zero temps this week will help.  Some ice roads are open to ATV and snowmobile traffic.  Check with your resort / outfitter prior to coming up.  Fishing has started out excellent as expected.  Most finding walleyes and saugers in 21 - 26 feet of water.  A shallow bite happening in 18-20' morning / evening.  The norm of jigging one line and dead sticking the other line working well.  Good numbers of fish being caught with some trophies mixed in as well as pout, perch, tullibees, sturgeon and an occasional pike.  Very little snow on the ice.  

On the Rainy River...   Most of the river is frozen over with a few random spots still showing open water.  There is no traffic on the river at this time while ice is forming.  Extra caution is always needed with current and this year the current is stronger than most years.  


Up at the NW Angle...  Some resorts have a few fish houses out and initial fishing reports for walleyes are excellent.  Some areas still need time with high current this year.  Forecast is favorable with sub zero temps this week.  The majority of ice traffic is snowmobiles thus far.  It's a must to stick to resort marked trails or know the area you are traveling.
