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!

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
