      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Rainy River Inquiry

Recommended Posts

All,

I'm looking to go to the Rainy this year and was wondering two things from you seasoned Rainy experts:

1.) What is the best way to get there from Fargo

2.) Any suggestions on where to stay? Can you camp by the launches at all?

I am expecting to go there when the big boats are launchable. Any ideas when that normally is every year? Is there any chance that the run will last till about April 8th or so? I have read some real good Rainy River info on this forum in the years past. Any comments on this stuff would be great! Thanks to all and good luck!

quickest way is hiway 10 to DL than take 34 to Park Rapids and than hop on 71 north all the way up....if you go out of Baudette there are resorts, motels, and campgrounds....if you head up further towards Birchdale and Manitou than all you have is the birchdale campground...hope this helps.....the river in the spring is a blast!!!!

check out Clementson resort I have stayed their multiple times. It ain't the fanciest place but their place is clean and warm with kitchens for cooking. It will be interesting this year. I don't know how much snow they have but the ideal time is too follow the ice as it goes out and to catch it before it muddies up cause that will shut her down. Keep an eye on their website and try to be flexible.

Bison, if your leaving from Fargo I would take I-29 to drayton and then east to greenbush. Take a left there on hiway 11 and it's a straight shot from there. As far as camping goes we camped a fronteer two years ago, and the dnr was there checking everyone as they got off the river and they never said anything to us. If I remember correctly I believe there is an actual campsite at birchdale. If your going to bring a bigger boat your probably going to want to use birchdale anyway.

If you are going this route take the Island/Shell Lake road that is east of Hight Of Land. This will take you up through Two Inlets and cut off 3 to 4 miles.
