The beauty of the International Falls, Ranier and Rainy Lake area are the change of seasons – creating a never-ending palette of colors and exciting vacation experiences.

The first sight of gulls returning to Rainy Lake triggers spring fever in locals and visitors alike. Special Border Waters regulations extend the walleye season in the spring and northern pike and smallmouth bass seasons are open continuous. Early spring is prime time for fishing the Rainy River – a world-class fishery. There are convenient boat launches above and below the dam in International Falls, with another located 11 miles west.

Mid-spring marks the start of the Minnesota walleye opener – and the golfing season! Water is open – and anglers and boaters are ready to embark upon one of their most memorable vacations in the Rainy Lake area.

Migrating and native song birds abound in our many hiking areas, offering a bird watcher excellent opportunities. Any way you look at it – spring is a truly refreshing and invigorating time to visit our very special Minnesota’s Vacation Paradise™.
