Walleye anglers on Rainy Lake are having success using right colored jigs and spinners with live bait. The most productive times have been late afternoon into evening and the walleye are schooling around the structure 25 to 30 feet deep. Rainy River walleye are also fairly active, use a spinner rig with a emerald shiner and troll around the structure and faster current from International Falls downstream.
Large northern pike can be pulled from the weedy bay edges all along the south shore of Rainy lake, but Cranberry and Black Bay have been seeing the most traffic.
Some overachievers in the forest are showing off their bright red colors. Maples are often the first trees to turn in the fall and you can spot a few here and there as our backdrop of green is starting to change.
Small game seasons open this weekend. Ruffed and spruce grouse are common throughout the extensive habitat in Koochiching County. Contact us if you'd like a map showing the forestry roads and hunter walking trails. email@example.com
