Me and my brother are planning a trip for april and were wondering if you guys could point us in the right direction. This is our first time coming up there so any info would be appreciated.

Best advice would be to go before the river muddies up. Might have to push your boat over the ice but it is worth it. When they are going good I think you can catch some darn near anywhere in the river. Best spots seems to be holes or runs downstream from any shallower water or rapids.

Gold jigs are popular, as are white ones. Alot of guys try and get the big rainbow minnows, but I've had just as good of luck on plastics. Twister tails, sassy shads, etc. White is a good color in any plastic you use.

Be ready to fight some crowds if the landings are open to the bigger boats.

Birchdale access is a good one and popular among alot of guys that go up.

Another thing you may or may not know already, you can only fish the American side of the river, unless you get a remote border pass. I think they cost like 35 bucks or so if you wanted to get one.

Take a look at the clementson resort website. They have alot of good information and update the river conditions when they change.

All in all, it can be one the funnest trips you'll ever go on if you hit it right. The fishing and size of fish caught are unbelievable.

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
