I have a few questions about the portage into Rainy Lake. Do you have to get a Canadian License, and what about bait? How far do you go for good fishing and what are some good spots. Is the fishing usually good there in May?

dpgibson,
No ontario lisence needed, portage at kettle falls, cost is $40 round trip. The rainy side can be very good in the early season as there is current from the dam that draws walleyes. This time of year you should be heading out toward the reefs and look for the boats. Get a NOAA map (and this year take about 3-4 ft off of everything) for that section of the lake. Lots of very nice fish from now til fall on the reefs east of the Brule, I hope to tangle with a few for a day next weekend. Smallmouth, try the shorelines in shallower water (6-15')
Try reefs around blueberry/shelland island, around boobs island, windmill rock and the first green bouy (37??) as you get out into the main lake from the river.

How many miles is it from the visitors center to the portion of Rainy mentioned above? Is there any place to get gas along the way?

crestliner,
The run from Ash river ramp is only @ 12 miles (I use 1.5 gallons in my 90 4 stroke at cruising speed, 26 mph) and is a nice ride, just follow the bouys (especially the tight lefthand turn ne of Kubel Island, keep the red on your left and green on your right going to Kettle, and opposite on the way back)
Kettle Falls has gas pumps, it was @ $3/gallon last year at this time.
From Kettle Falls to Shelland island (the furthest away of the spots i named above) it is another 12-13 miles from the dock at Kettle Falls. They have a lakemap in the hotel lobby near the bar entrance (a "cant miss" if you go up there) and i bet someone would give you a couple of pointers on where folks have been having luck.
