I am wondering if anyone could give me some ideas for fishing around the 4th.We will be taking a HB from RLHB.We would like some tips for northerns, walleyes & smallmouth around this time. We will be on the US side only. Thanks for any help.

HI WELLMAN,

EVER BEEN TO RAINY??? MOST FOLKS TAKE THE HOUSEBOATS TO THE EAST END, FOR BOTH BREATHTAKING BEAUTY & GREAT FISHING. BIG NORTHERNS WILL BE OUT OF THE SHALLOWS, UNLESS YOU CAN FIND CABBAGE., LOOK FOR THEM OUT WITH THE WALLEYES., AND AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE 4TH OF JULY, WE WILL HAVE A BETTER IDEA WHAT KIND OF DEPTH THE WALLEYES WILL BE. RAINY IS A VERY DIFFERENT LAKE, A PLACE WHERE YOU HAMMER 1 YEAR, YOU MAY NOT FIND A FISH THE NEXT YEAR...ONE THING FORSURE, THE WALLYES WILL BE ACTIVE SOMEWHERE., YOU SHOULD DO WELL, YOU'LL BE FISHING ONE OF THE 20 BEST WALLEYE LAKES IN THE WORLD. OH BY THE WAY JULY 4TH IS ABOUT 5 MONTHS AWAY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Thanks for the quick reply Fishmeister. I see your name in almost all posts. We were up there 2 years ago in July. Lots of structure to look at. We only caught eyes that time that were in the slot?? so they were 2 big to keep. Caught aa couple small northerns also. Thanks again.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.
