Rainy Lake and International Falls.
Walleye have moved to the reefs on Rainy Lake and are responding to jigs and minnows. You will still find walleye on the windswept sides of rocky islands around 20 feet and even deeper. Those shorelines are also where you will find the smallmouth bass, they will react to a topwater lure. Crappie are still being caught in Black Bay from the Rat Root River and east. Smaller jigs and minnows are working best for the crappie.
Rainy River anglers are getting out more now that the high water has receded some and the walleye fishing has been good especially in areas where water flows into the river. Spinner rigs and shiner minnows are the best bet on the River.
