On the south end… Excellent fall fishing with many limits and trophy walleyes. Water temps in the low 60’s and walleyes are staging along south shore. Walleyes in good numbers in front of Lighthouse Gap (mouth of Rainy River) in 28′ – 30′. Other areas such as Zippel Bay, Long Point, Rocky Point and Garden Island still holding good fish as well. Anglers having success anchored up and jigging. Gold, orange, glow and pink hot colors with a live or frozen shiner. The fall jig bite continues strong.
On the Rainy River… Increased current this week in the river with a lot of rain. Emerald shiners are in the river and have been for weeks. Good walleye fishing continues in Four Mile Bay as well as upstream on the river near Baudette. Sturgeon anglers reporting good success with some big sturgeon being boated.
Up at the NW Angle… Walleyes being caught in various spots around Garden Island, points with current, neck down areas and at mouths of bays where shiners are running. Big schools of shiners showing up. Jigging and pulling spinners both effective. Crappie and perch activity continues to pick up. Muskie fishing remains strong with cooler water.
