Rainy Lake and International Falls.
The border waters spring walleye season has ended. Rainy River is open and anglers are trying for sturgeon and big northern pike. A 100 pound sturgeon was caught and released by Andy Fronek of Eden Prairie. The sturgeon tag season doesn’t open until April 24. The 100 pound weight is purely a guestimate base on the length and girth of the monster fish. The sturgeon measures 5 feet and 11 inches with a girth of 29 inches. Fronek said he had never fished for sturgeon before and “It was pretty cool”
Anglers nearer International Falls have been trying for smallmouth bass below the dam and fishing has been pretty good. The Ron Hall access off Shorewood Drive has been open for a couple of weeks now.
