What way does the Rainy River flow? into LOTW? Or out?

It flows from Rainy Lake into LOTW

I've been standing here for 5 years trying to convince myself that it flows that way. At our place the river is flowing directly north and that just goes against all the midwest logic I contain.

Of all our guests that stand on the bank & venture a guess, I'm betting half guess wrong, so you're in good company not knowing.

Good point Doug! It's just as confusing to drive Hwy. 11 from here to Baudette. I swear I'm going west all the way when in reality the road goes every direction but east at some point.

On a different note, with the rain we're getting here now and south of here the last few days the river level should be in fine shape, although it'll probably be stained below the tribs.

Not too worried about the stain. The water is as clear as I've seen it in 5 years. Was actually able to see and retrieve a prop, nut, and bushing with a wire in about 4 feet of water off our dock the other day.

That is amazing for the Rainy!

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
