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.

Dan Kiazyk, guides up there and I have found him very helpful with advice. He is also an active member of this site. I think he still has a few days open this fall, you might want to give him a try.

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 got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
    • monstermoose78
      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
