I wish I could help you out but I haven't been out for a week now. Too many projects to get crossed off my list right now.

Good Luck tonight!

The river is dynamite, as usual. You can catch hundreds of 12'' smallies, dozens of 16'', and the occasional piggie. I've been doing best for the big ones at sundown, but the middle of the day is awesome as well. Topwaters, plastics, cranks, tubes, mister twisters, etc etc etc. They're all working now.

Concerning lakes, I have only been out to Beaver and Sagatan (on SJU campus). The largies are going pretty good, too, but my lack of deep-water skills means that I do much better at dusk than in the afternoon.

Hope that helps. Just get on the old tennis shoes, bring a pocket full of plastics, and walk around the river. You can't miss 'em!

I second that!!! The river is phenomenal right now. We have been using Night crawlers and launching it out there and you pretty much come up with something everytime!!! We even caught 4 or 5 walleyes on crawlers too. Really a lot of fun right now!!! Good luck.....

Studer,

You still fishing below 10th Street? I remember you talking about the tube fishing a while ago...

been having luck on the river as well, above sartell dam. LOTS of smallies in the 12-18 range, some walleyes that would be good eaters if they weren't out of the river, some skinny northerns and even some catfish.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

      February 23rd, 2017:
         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
