Lake of the Woods - Full coolers and big smiles were the theme this week as walleye fishing remains hot. Spinners with crawlers or minnows are putting lots of fish in the boat in 16-30 ft. Gold, glow and bright colors continue to be solid choices. Pike active, perch and smallmouth bite in many areas of the lake.

CO Weekly Report (7-17)
CO Eric Benjamin (Warroad North) worked OHV, AIS, boat/water safety, and angling enforcement. Several nuisance bear and wolf depredation calls were handled. Please do not intentionally feed bears, especially when you have neighbors within close proximity that do not share your enthusiasm for getting “up close and personal” with one.
DNR Outdoor Weekly Report (7-20)
Lake Michigan fishing has been a roller coaster over the past week. Out of Kewaunee, chinook and rainbow dominated the catch. Anglers out of Sheboygan and Port Washington had a tough time with the weather, but still managed some chinook, coho and trout. Farther south brown trout and chinook salmon made up most of the catch, but lake trout, coho salmon, and steelhead were also caught out of Racine and Kenosha.
