great fishing 4-U

I'm going to be staying on the ash river and want to take a ride to kettle falls and the dams. Looking at a map I see the dam is in canada and even getting to kettle falls I would most likly be going into canada. Is this ok I'm not sure what I can and can not do.

The international boundary runs down the center of the channel to Kettle Falls (one of those rare places where you can look south into Canada) but you can stay in the U.S. all the way to the Kettle Falls docks no problem. Just follow the channel markers and make sure you have a map, you don't want to miss the turn at Bivo Island!

You are allowed to travel on the border waters without any permits. You can stray into Canadaian waters while on route to a US destination, but you may not fish, stop on the water, or set foot on Canadian soil. If you want to fish Canadian Waters you can obtain a remote border permit from the Canadian Customs either by mail or in person at any border crossing. Fort Francis would be the closest location to the Ash Trail. They cost about $25 US and are good for 1 year. If you fish Canadian Waters you must have an Ontario Fishing License and can only have live bait and a receipt from a Canadian bait store. Crawlers packed in paper are the exception. You cannot have a US limit and then go to Canada and catch a Canadian limit. This can be a problem because the limit for US citizens on Rainy is 1 walleye in the slot size.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
