Fort Francis River Landing

5 posts in this topic

It looks like I might be shut down for landing my boat on the american side of Rainy River, anyone know conditions for the Fort Francis landing near the dam? I know it faces south, might be better shape than the one in the falls. Any help would be appreciated. The boat is just begging me to be put in....Sturgeon are waiting for me. Thanks....

Not sure about boat launch but check about changes to sturgon regs for this spring, changes where made to season dates and size restrictions

I just checked it for you. You can launch care free as the ice has been removed. Yep, the sturgeon rules have changed to overall length instead of fillet length and the May is no longer open season.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
