Winkelman Group~”Here’s some pics from our trip the weekend of the 11th-14th. Had a great time on the river and in the bay. Caught probably 150 fish in the 4 days on the water, 25 of them being sturgeon with a 56in being the largest. Turning into an annual trip for us! Can’t wait for next year already.”
Thanks for the pics!

Sturgeon prespawn right around the corner! Catch and release until the 24th and anglers continue to hit the river!
Water levels are really low, but we’re finally getting some much needed rain. The outlook on the week looks a bit chilly so bring extra gear!

We’ve come to the last day of 2015 walleye prespawn season. Sturgeon is now on deck!
Anglers remain on the river fishing catch and release. The weather has been awesome for it! The walleye bite has picked up now that the water temp has finally risen.
If you have photos you’d like to share from your trip send them our way!
Sturgeon prespawn starts April 24th! Looking forward to some large catches!

Graham Group~Fishing was great! 75 fish boated in a day and a half with 10 or so over 25″. Chartreuse or pink jigs tipped with rainbows or fatheads produced! Many fish from 20-24″ caught! Staying vertical was key!
Thanks for sending these! Awesome catches!

Lefrooth Group~”Pretty slow fishin in 4 mile bay but we got a few nice ones. Boated about 20-30 eyes. Mostly small”
Thanks for the pics and update! Great catches! Your report was about the same for most anglers the last couple days. Not a rapid bite but fish are being boated.
Water temp has now reached lower 40’s now. We’ll see what the next couple days hold!
The walleye prespawn season ends April 14th. Many anglers continue fishing the area beyond Tuesday as northern and small mouth bass are continuous year round in the Rainy river and sturgeon catch and release doesn’t end until May 15th.
The sturgeon prespawn begins April 24th.
We have availability the next couple weeks for anglers wanting to continue to fish the next few weeks! Just give us a call. 800-433-6085
The Clementson bay finally opened yesterday so the dock will be available soon!

I had a few nervous anglers call this afternoon. Seems someone told them the river is muddy, ugh. NO it’s not.
Even though I knew it wasn’t. I had to make sure, so I walked down to the river, it was fine, checked the bay, (maybe it let loose) nope, still ice. Checked the water levels, nope water levels have been going down for days. My final double check was to message anglers I knew were on the river at that moment. They assured me river was fine with a couple pictures of today’s catches to prove it.
The Rainy River is a naturally stained river, some do not understand the difference. Some people like to veer others away saying this, so lines at the ramps aren’t as long.
I hate to say it, but it is gorgeous here today! Sun is shining anglers are out fishing! It’s going to be a very beautiful and busy weekend on Lake of the Woods!
Better numbers were reported near the Gap yesterday. Lot’s of 18-19″. Not as many bigger walleye (25″+) as we’ve been seeing up river though.
Pink/white jig (3/8) with a minnow was hitting last evening. 15′ depth. One angler was even down to 1/4 oz. Current is not strong. Just need water temp to go up. This sunny weather will help!
We’ll get more reports as anglers come in tonight!

Catch and Release Sturgeon season has been extended to May 15th this year That way you have more time to get up here and boat one like the Sheehan Group……
“Caught this on 3-31-15, 5.5 hr. battle, moved us almost 3 miles down river was 63.5 inches long and 27.5 inch girth.”
Anglers are starting to come in for the day, so we’ll be able to find out how their day went. Water temp is still upper 30’s. First group said no big numbers yet, but they’re boating some big size walleye, 25″-30″ and keepers for the fryer too!
