It should be very good at Selkirk and Pine Falls this season starting in mid to late September. The rivers are full of food and that will draw the greenbacks up and hold them.

Best advice I can give you is get a list of contacts, such as Cats on the Red for one, and check in often to see how the bite is progresing. North winds push the fish in the Red from the main lake and West or North West winds set up the fish at Pine Falls. The wind makes a huge difference in if or when the best bite gets rolling as well as the river levels.

Think late September and most of October and early November for the biggest walleyes to show. Latter the bigger.

I suspect the greenbacks will be in as per usual by the middle of September. Water temperature and photo-period are also two significant factors which determine their presence and in what numbers. If we also continue to get the cooler nights up here they seem to move in a bit sooner. I have written a bit on the greenback run etc. on my web site.
Just go to google and type in Cat Eye Outfitter (this board seems to be doing funny stuff to my site URL).

I suspect the jig/bait and the trolled crankbait will reign throughout the season. Chartreuses/oranges/yellows/blues/whites/silver are all productive colours at one time or another. The prior are always better for me but I depends upon the day etc....

I'm in the process of writing another 8 articles at the moment and I should have them ready in a month or so. One of my key interests this summer was the "high water" we saw throughout July this year (and how few boats there were on the river each day). I'm also going to be watching with a keen eye what kind of walleye run there will be this year (stuff to write about)..... old timers (of the lily Anne era) on the river say that after a high water year the run should be substantial.... I guess we'll see eh!
My latest kick has been to flyfish for cats. I'm getting a bit better at it all the time. The morning (7:30-11:30) of the "Cats" tournament Stu Thompson and myself landed nine cats. Heck, we could have entered the tournament as shore anglers....hmmm maybe next year!
Get ready guys.... they're on their way!

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
