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!

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      but are the northerns making flags go up?

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.

      I will also add to my above post that the discoveries of this disease in new areas like crow wing co. should not become a panic in that area and the whacking of deer in these areas is truly nonsense. What if one deer survives the mass killing that happens to be infected ,, well then what ? In a herd that annually is around one million in our state , having a handful of sick deer from CWD is not the end to our herd .How many deer actually do test positive from these stupid massive killings when all the bullets are done flying ?? Sooner or later with the now implementation of CWD testing , ,it’s gonna pop up  in new areas either naturally or by the existence of poor oversight and improper management of deer farms . So if this time it’s a deer in Crow Wing Co . So the DNR says let’s whack them all in that area , how bout when one happens to test positive next month in Lake of the woods co  , well let’s whack them all there too , and when one happens to test positive in Itasca or Hubbard co , well let’s whack them also . Before long we won’t have any deer left in our state with this stupid thinking , it won’t be the he disease itself that eliminated our deer herd , it’s the DNR that just eliminated our herd .. killing as many deer in a positive test area does nothing to help the problem..  on another note our DNR management of deer is terrible and many times quotas for upcoming seasons are determined by auto  insurance companies who pressure the state that these areas are carrying to many deer and the herd needs to be thinner in these areas , and thus lowering  the payouts to insured motorists who happen to hit a deer and make a claim. So then the state ups the permits and harvest in these areas to thin out the deer , ahhhh money the root of all evil. Nothing to do with a Biological stance whatsoever. And when these numbers don’t fall within quotas by permits to harvest these extra deer , well then find a deer in those areas that has CWD and kill them all , then the state says “there now we lowered those numbers “ and the insurance companies say thanks . Nooooooo dat don’t happen , does it ??? Hmmmmm !!
