Well it has been quiet a few years since I have stayed there. Nice quaint cabins kept clean. Lodge is nice and Kris is a great host (I believe she still runs it, hear she may have moved south). I was usually up in spring for the river so business was slow and not alot of people. The only complaint that I have had is, I was not happy with the Ice house rental we had about 5 years ago, But it's been a long time and We where the first people in thier house that winter so thing are probably better now. My in-laws rented a charter thru them 3 summers ago and had a blast the captian was great they said.

I would not hesitate going back in future.

Awesome place. I found them through Fishing Minnesota and booked three days with them in January and caught real nice fish. This was the first time I have ever been to lake of the woods and I am addicted. I am scheduled to go next Sunday through Tuesday by my self and cant explain how excited I am. There cabins are first rate and the people including the guides are fantastic. I would recommend fishing during the day and staying at the resort at night. LOW is not a very good night bite lake.

Hey Ralph aren't you staying at Riverbend not Riverview? They aren't the same just letting you know.

euorlarva: I too was sure that you were at Riverbend, not Riverview in January. I do know that you're headed to Riverbend next week. Bill

We stayed at riverview for 4 days 3 nights in december and had a great time. Great cabins, awesome bar with great food and stiff drinks, and a handfull of guides that had us on top of fish the entire time we were there. Between 8 guys we caught around 70-80 fish in one weekend including a 25", 27" walter, and a ton of good eaters. I would definetly recommend riverview resort for a good time.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
