International Falls is made famous by the unforgettable beauty and big catch that comes from Rainy Lake, but you might be missing out on more fishing opportunities in the fall and spring on Rainy River. Due to the border waters (Rainy River borders Canada and United States), there is a special regulation that allows some fishing seasons to be open longer or not close at all. When you visit Rainy Lake, explore the Rainy River. Here's 3 reasons why.
TOP 3 REASONS TO FISH RAINY RIVER
