Rainy Lake anglers are anxiously awaiting their “unofficial start to summer” — the fishing opener this Saturday, May 15th. The forecast is calling for warm weather, and the rising water temperatures are creating great conditions for a strong and steady bite this weekend.
Please remember to use extra caution on the water this time. Although water levels are advancing, they are still low and may expose unmarked hazards that are not typically visible during high-water periods.
