Sand Island Falls

2 posts in this topic

My neighbor on the lake is 70 years old and has lived in the Falls his whole life. He’s told me a lot of stories of Rainy Lake history.

One day while reminiscing, he spoke of a glorious fall day on which he and a buddy took the boat to Sand Island Falls and fished the river section immediately below the rapids. He rambled on and on about the nice fish that they caught and the great scenery they experienced.

Has anyone fished that area lately? Is it legal to fish that area, taking into account its proximity to the reservation?

Thanks for any comments you may have.

I have fished there below the falls several times over the years. Never done great, only a few eyes in the spring. That area is kind of shallow. Not sure if there is a problem because of the reservation. Got several muskies in crooked narrows, just down stream from there. I think that area is now closed in the spring until the middle of june.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
