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 have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
