Fishing Report Update from Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau Sept. 22nd, 2015

September 22nd, 2015 
Awesome fishing this past week.  Good numbers of eater and trophy walleyes being caught trolling crankbaits in 30-34′.  Try west of the 9 footer, in front of Pine Island, 8 miles north of Graceton Beach and all around Lem’s Reef. Some going across to Garden and Knight Islands in 22-25 or 28-32 feet pulling spinners. For colors, try firetiger, gold, red or orange. Plenty of eater walleyes and saugers in the mix with crankbaits, spinners and jigs all producing.  Walleyes starting to show up on the south shore and in the river.

On the Rainy River, walleye and sauger active in the evenings 18′ jigging. Use a crawler or a live minnow for an aggressive bite. Best colors pink or glow. Sturgeon active as well using a circle hook and gob of crawlers. Anglers anchoring for all species on the high side of a drop off casting in. Best areas Baudette Bay towards Clementson. Pike active casting off docks pulling baits over weed beds. 

Up at the NW Angle, walleye bite active!  On MN side, try areas of Oak and Little Oak Islands, points and gaps productive jigging with a minnow in 22-24 or 28-32 feet. On the Ontario side crappie bite hot! Try 30-34 feet jigging with a minnow in deep troughs or off points over structure
