Rainy River Walleyes

3 posts in this topic

Ha whats going on at the Rainy River and Lake of The Woods at Light house gap. Are the walleyes still bitting and for how much longer. I heard snow and freezing for the weekend of Oct. 13-14-15. Is that going to slow the bit down or make it pick up. I Live in the cities and want to make a late run up there didn't make it in august. Heard it was good. Wondering is the gap going to be a good place to go or we going to have to run down river to Baudette. Haven't fished there this late. Like to hear some remarks on the bit. Thanks. Walleye

I don't get up to Lake of the Woods as often as I would like, but I do always squeeze in one late season trip and it's always good fishing.

It seems I am always up on the coldest freakin' day of the year, freezing fingers, ice forming on my beard, soaking wet clothes and the wind just a howling...Yet, It's still tons of fun!

The fish only seem to bite better and better as the hardwater season approaches. Late fall/Early Ice = Great fishing on LOW/Rainy River. You'll be fine, the cold weather shouldn't hurt anything as far as the fishing, It'll just make it tougher on you.

I still haven't made my annual fall trip yet, I guess it's not cold enough yet? I'm planning on heading up late this month.

Good luck and have fun on your trip. grin.gif

The best day of fishing I've ever had was the day before things froze up. Any time from now till that happens is the best fishing ever. Everybody talks about the late spring fishing, but the fall fishing is way better!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
