Fish the current areas. Above the falls, below the d a m , river etc. Depending on water temps you may be able to find them up tight on the weeds and wood.

If you have a canoe take the 1st portage and fish below the falls. We have done very well there early and late in the day. Jig n minnow there and other current areas but crawlers always work. Walleyes love crawlers no matter where I have been.

Slip bobbers with a leech or minnow can also produce once you find a point break or rock pile.

I havent been there for about 5 years though so this may be old news but should still hold up.

Good luck.

You will need a permit if traveling to the Northeast end of the lake, maybe HP restrictions there also. Check at the Wolf Center before heading up. We have done well just trolling in front of the campground in the evening with a crawler harness. If you get the proper permit, head East from the campground boat launch and look for some stumps and try a slip bobber and crawler. Talk to the campground host there, he'll give you some good info also.

Northlander,

You sure did need a permit to fish the BWCA side of Fall lake if you weren't a cabin owner on the lake 5-7 years ago.

You're lucky you aren't rotting in some prison making picnic tables and latrines for the Forest Service! grin.gifgrin.gif

You will need a BWCAW permit to travel North past the canoe landing. Day Trip Paddlers can self register at the Entry Point Information Post ( That must be what NL did when he took a canoe to the Splash Lk. rapids ).

-Not sure regarding the 25hp. motor permits/ availability...

Later -CLoma

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
