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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
