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.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
