Anchored up and jigging and drifting or trolling spinners the most productive in depths ranging from 14-32′. Walleyes on both structure and over mud in basin from Pine Island to Knight/Bridges to Archie’s Reef and spots in between. Gold, pink, glow and orange good starting points.
On the Rainy River… Most walleye anglers fishing lake. The river holds a nice population of resident walleyes. Nice for change of scenery, smaller boats, blow days, etc. Walleyes and saugers being caught in normal river areas such as holes, current breaks and sand riffs. Smallmouth bass relating to rocks, bridges. Pike in and adjacent to bays and current breaks. Sturgeon season opens July 1st for the catch season again.
Up at the NW Angle… Walleye fishing strong on both sides of the border. Anglers finding walleyes on flats, rocky points and over mud in 6′-30′.
