Lake of The Woods MN Fishing Report

Lake of The Woods MN Fishing Report October 20, 2022. We can honestly say that the trophy fall walleye run Is In full swing! Over the course of this past week, the temperature dropped and so did the temperature of the water. 

We hit the magical 48º mark sometime on Monday or Tuesday of this week … at that point the experienced angler knows It’s only a matter of time – hours not days – the last piece of the puzzle has been put Into place. The feeding frenzy will commence and the big girls will eat.

Along the south shoreline of the big water schools of fish still holding their fall patters are being found In good numbers. 18 to 25 feet of water has been the depth range most are being found. Frozen shiners on pink jigs has been the go to as well as landing more fish In the net. 

Any brightly colored jig Is worth a try. Including gold, hammered gold, pink, red, lime green, and yellow. 

Schools are still being found out over the mud flats as well In 32 feet of water. Most anglers have been pulling crank baits with fairly good success In those spot.

Moving Into the river, you will find a mixed bag catch happening. Jumbo perch, crappy, walleye, sauger, smallmouth bass, sturgeon, bull head catfish, and even white fish have been seen In the cleaning shack. 

Pink, silver, gold, and tricolor (yellow, orange, blue) 3/4oz jig heads rigged with a frozen shiner In 11 foot of water around structure Is your starting point. Moving between the 11 foot mark to 18 feet seems to be the steady our there. 

We have noticed some anglers hugging the dock line pulling crank baits with fairly good success as well. The fact that the bite has turned on, I’m pretty confident that no matter what you want to try, success Is more likely than not.

Not to mention, this Is the time of the year when you are more likely to land a true Lake of The Woods Trophy Walleye.
