Heading up for our 3rd annual Rainy trip on Thursday. 7-8 guys, 3 boats, staying @ Woody's, will be fishing thursday even thur Mon. Every year we've got some guys that want to fish the Canadian side, some don't. Some keep saying we gotta go farther east, we gotta go farther east (ie Saginaw Bay & beyond. I'm looking for opinions on whether or not the fishing really is that much better in Canada. And if so, how come? less fishing pressure? Or is your typical the grass is always greener effect?

Hope to stop in and see ya fishmiester.

Nice haul RainyDaze! Saw the pictures on Woody's website. Maybe you'll give us your hot spots this weekend, we'll be in the Northstar.

Nice report vister. I've lived in Wadena for 2 years now. Transplant from Duluth. Please let me know if you've got any last minute advice for this weekend.

Hey Capitalgains,

I'm sure I'll see you although I'm independant I'm guiding Friday and Saturday through Woody's. The fishing has been great! Caught some real nice fish tonight again with the fishing queen on board. Biggest fish was a nice 22 incher. FYI the fishing queen is the GM at Woody's. Pretty easy to get along with too! She always tells people we fished blindfold reef! Great gal I tell Ya! Look forward to meeting you! I haven't found a need to fish the east end this time of year, and canada...

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
