  1. Made my long awaited return to the Rush yesterday. Never got a WI license last year, so it was good to be back! Beautiful weather! But conditions could not have been worse for trout! Water was lowest I’ve ever seen! And gin clear, without a single cloud in the sky. We were fortunate to catch the 3 we did. Way too many people out for my liking. But our gear worked, and our boots didn’t leak so it was a great day as far as I’m concerned.

  7. Raven- we did the same on the east end. Going to be a phenomenal year up there. Found results of the 2014 creel survey again to back up my claims of people keeping 10-12” fish and this is a screenshot from it. People even keep a small sliver of 9 inchers! It’s not a shock though if you’ve spent much time in the community deep holes on opener. If people want to clean one that small I guess they can go for it, just not my cup of tea.

  17. We caught and released dozens of 10-13" walleyes on the west end last Sep/Oct. Bodes well for this season as many of them will be keepers in 2021. Cool to see the article in the Timberjay reinforces our observation. Can't wait for opener!

  19. Historic numbers of fish in the lake right now. Should be tons of pressure this year. There is also a creel survey this summer according to dnr management plan. Results of that should be interesting

  23. http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html Scroll down the list on the left side of the page. Click on Namakan, which also shows Crane Lake (the green line on the graph). Done. Stop whining.

  24. On the south end... Most of the lake is still ice covered with the exception of large areas adjacent to inflowing water such as the Lighthouse Gap (Rainy River) and Morris Point Gap (Bostic Creek) areas. Open water is expanding daily. Anglers are allowed a limit of walleyes and saugers on the lake, but catch and release only on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River through April 14. Open water is becoming available in many of the back bays around the lake where pike spawn. The pike season is open year round on LOW and the Rainy River. 3 fish per day, 30-40 inches must be released, one ov

  26. Agreed. Last spring I witnessed the most intense pressure that I've ever seen on the west end of the lake, spread out over many weekends. I doubt that the folks posting on this forum are the heavy meat hunters, but maybe some of the lurkers will take it easy. Hopefully the increased pandemic pressure will also ease this season. One can hope! p.s. I was setting you up for a Retreat Lodge pitch!

  27. There's lots or reputable fishing lodges around, finding one with an opening could be hard to find this year. If you know of someone looking for a place to stay, tell them don't delay. I think the lake is going to get hard again this year and we all need to be kind to the fish, keep what you need for a meal (once in a while) and let the rest go. Because of the pandemic I was forced to spend a lot of time in my fish house this winter and from what I could tell the lake is full of 10"-12" eyes. These fish will grow into eater size by fall so treat them right, let them go and let them gr

  29. A few smaller lakes, 300 acres or less, are open between rapids and Marcell. Even saw a few boats out. Bigger bodies of water are pulled away from shore but probably another week or so before they open up

  30. Took a couple picture of the lake on Saturday April 3 at my dock. I’m guessing rainy lake will be ice free April 17 which is quite early Water is typically low this time of year and there has been very little run off from the spring melt so there may be a few more rocks showing if we don’t get any rain. Sorry about the video...still learning how to upload from my phone.

  31. Eyeguy and I made it out Monday. Hit a local lake, when we launched the ice was still covering about half the lake. We ventured into a long narrow boat channel that offered pretty decent protection from the crazy wind. Action started very slow, but ended up finding fish in the very center of the channel where the water was deepest. I had my best luck on a 1/64 oz jughead tipped with a chunk of crawler. I was able to get a few on plastics, but not near the amount I got with meat... Saw a few crappies caught, but wasn't able to land one yet myself...lol. Felt good to be back out chasin'

  32. Old post but I appreciate the response. Welcome to the forums. I already rebuilt my outhouse as it was, with a good old pit and barrel. It looks a lot better than before. While building it I called it the Taj Ma-Toilet, although it will still forever be named The Hilton. Paris Hilton deserves to have an outhouse named after her.
