I grew up on the lake, Fished it quite a bit. There are a few Walleyes; hard to find at times, Lots of Little Northerns, Some Big Bass, Crappies of all sizes, and many sunfish.

If we would happen to catch a Big Walleye, Northern or Bass it went back into the lake.

I have lived on the lake for 3 years and fished it since i was 16. I have personally never caught an eye in there but i know people who have. A kid i went to school with actually did pretty well out there this winter. Lots of weeds in the summer though. I know the dnr netted it 2 years agao and they got 6 in a trap net out in front of my house all 22-29 inch fish. The way it's going right now in a couple years there won't be any water in there anymore. It's scary how low it is now.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

      February 23rd, 2017:
         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
