Rainy Lake Question

6 posts in this topic

Planning our fall trip to rainy and this year we a planning on going later in Oct. My question is when do they normal remove the navigational marker. Usually its not an issue since we always went up in early Oct., but I have to work it into my work schedule and this year it looks we would be going around the Oct. 27th.

HI NPS.,

WELCOME TO FISHING MN...THE RAINY LAKE SITE. I'M GUESSING THE MARKERS WILL BE PULLED BY THEN. THE LATER THEY WAIT, THE WORSE THE WEATHER GETS & CLOSER WE ARE TO ICE.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

It looks like our plans have changed. Now we are planning on coming Oct. 12th thru 15th. Will any of the bait shops have rainbows this time of year. Last year we came up in Oct. there were no rainbows. We always seem to do better with rainbow than fatheads. Any fishing reports for the east end. We usually camp down there and fish the reefs in that area for walleyes. Any infor is much appreciated!

The marker on the Canadian side of Sand Bay south of the railroad bridges is gone tongue.gif. There is a big reef there so be careful.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
