River Landing

4 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me if the Rainy River landing (closest to the Dam) is still blocked off or could be used this weekend for landing a boat? There wasnt much snow up there the last time and the recent melting may have given it what we need. Please let me know. The sturgeon are waiting for me..........Thanks...

As of yesterday afternoon the city has it blocked off. It is plowed but icy towards the bottom end. Suppose you could carry a canoe or drag a boat down there.

Thanks! I might look for an update later in the week. I would be landing a 17 foot boat with a 75 Honda on it. It needs to be pretty sweet in order to work. I would assume the tar is open going down, but just wondering how much ice there is by the shore....

Went by just before noon and the barricades were turned 90 degrees so you could enter the landing. Some unauthorized yahoo could have moved the barricades, so still don't know if it's technically open. I didn't drive in.

There's a few inches to a foot of shelf ice on the bank at the landing that might present a problem, but the last 20-30 feet of tar to the bank is icy which I would think would present a bigger problem. IMO it would be iffy landing a boat with a 75 hp right now but it's been sunny and mid to upper 40's all day so that can improve things in a hurry.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
