Any reports East of the Narrows

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anybody has been fishing the east end of the lake? We are coming up next week and usually camp down in that area. Not set on any area, just looking for reports. Thanks

HI N.P.S.,

I DON'T FISH THE EAST END THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, AS THE WEST END IS AWESOME RIGHT NOW. I TALKED TO A GUY ABOUT 15 MINUTES AGO, AND THEY HAMMERED THEM IN 17 FOOT OF WATER IN MILD CURRENT LOADED WITH BAIT FISH. ALOT OF FISH... 14" TO 20". I DON'T LIKE USING THE XTRA GAS WHEN THE FISHING IS GOOD ON THIS END.

SINCERELY,

Where do you find current other than the narrows. Not looking for specific spots, just general ideas of what to look for. Is current important in fall fishing on Rainy. We always searched for reefs that were holding fish and worked them. Any tips on fishing Rainy after a front has moved through this time of year. Last couple fall trips we have experienced the worst of what this lake can offer. And fishing was about as good as the weather. But I still love to come this time of year. My wife thinks I'm crazy to keep going back this time of year.

Thanks, Doug

HI DOUG,

MY POINT EXACTLY, YOU SAID YOUR FISHING EAST OF THE BRULE, I SAY THE BEST FISHING EAST OF THE BRULE IS JULY & AUGUST. MAY, JUNE, SEPT, OCT & NOV. I CHOOSE THIS END. THERE ISN'T ALOT OF CURRENT ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE WE LACK MOISTURE. PLACES WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF CURRENT, WATER NARROWS, RANIER, LIFT BRIDGES, AMERICAN NARROWS, AND THERE ARE MANY MANY MORE, LOOK FOR PLACES WELL YOU HAVE HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF SMELT & BAIT FISH & ACCESS TO DEEP WATER & YOU WILL FIND FISH, THEY WILL BE THERE PIGGING OUT & GETTING FAT AS FOOTBALLS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
