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!

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
