Making my first trip to LOW / Rainy River and just wondering what the walleye will be biting on then, and the best way to target them. We will have access to downriggers if necessary, however would need to know what crankbaits to use if we do downrig, and what to use in the river.. thanks a bunch!

The trolling bite should maybe be kickin into gear pretty good about then? I like SR7's behing the balls in a few colors myself though I don't do much downriggin any more. Longlining and/or leadcore and snapweights for me as it's a little less boring and just as productive usually. Drowning meat on the mainlake rocks should get you plenty of fish. The river has been quite tough for getting the Walleye this spring for me the 3 times I've tried her since opener. Must be a low water/flow thing?

I was out Sunday. Started kinda slow, but i didnt get near as far out as i wanted. First of all we started in only 26 fow (wanted about 31) but there was a week stomach on board. To make a long story short once we got into about 29 FOW we really started gettin into the fish. By then however someone was really gettin sick so we went near shore and fished. It was pretty hot in shallow in around 6 to 13 FOW on worms. Tried trolling again oon the way back in towards evening with no sucess. There was a fiercer than fierce storm coming so that might have done turned em off by then. Moral of the story is pass the dramamine around. Good luck saturday.

We did well last week in 30-32' pulling SR7's in Hot Steel & Bleeding Firetiger. Minnow Rap & Husky Jerks did OK also.

Best lure for riggin' is still the little silver Blaze crank that was in everybodys clearance bin a couple of years ago. Water was cloudy for 3 or 4 miles out of the gap.

Did OK in the Zipple/Graceton area on jig & leech or crawler this week when the wind would let us out. Actually caught some decent eyes in Zipple Bay when the weather got bad.

The river has been running fast & dirty for the last couple of weeks but is starting to settle down. Picked up a couple of eyes just up from the dock on jig & leech.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
