Rainy River, Pine Island Nat'l Forest Grouse?

2 posts in this topic

Has anyone been chasing birds up around the Rainy River, Birchdale, Pine Island Nat'l Forest? Going up next weekend and wondering if the numbers are up in that area as well?

I have heard the numbers are up, but I don't know about that area. Usually Pine Island area takes longer than Ray/Kabetogama/Big Falls area to climb in numbers. I do know that the Big Falls area has been seeing quite a few grouse, just on the other side of the Pine Island State Forest. Range Road, and Ben Lynn Road are good ones to hit. I would imagine that you would have pretty good success down there though.

Good Luck and Shoot Straight.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
