Clementson Resort, 64 inch sturgeon, April, 2015The ice season for most is finished up and anglers are focusing on the open water of the Rainy River. Walleye season on this border water is open through April 14th and then again on May 9th. Sturgeon can be caught through May 15th.  Pike season is open all year long!

The entire Rainy River is open water all the way to the mouth at Four Mile Bay. Frontier, Birchdale, Vidas, and Timbermill Park accesses are open to all boats. Wheeler’s Point access at the mouth of the Rainy River has 10 feet of shore ice left that will be out very soon.

Big Rainy River walleye, April, 2015Fishing has been good! Trophy sized walleye showing up along with eaters and numbers of sturgeon actively biting. Boats have been anchoring and vertically jigging with minnows or frozen shiners. Bright colors, gold, pink/white, and chartreuse have been best. Shallower in 12-15 feet best. Good bite near International Bridge in Baudette and current seams.  Lodging
