A forecast like this will be having us doing river checks in the very near future! Looks like we’ll be pulling in our fish house soon! There’s about 30″ of ice currently on the river, this is pretty typical. Mild temps and lots of sun will break things up nice!

It has been a long cold winter! It’s so nice to actually see March! Today marks the official start to walleye prespawn on the Rainy River, now we just need to see some open water!
As we mentioned early this winter season, we were lucky enough to get good snow on the ice to prevent the ice from getting as thick as it could have. This marks our 8th year here at Clementson Resort and in the 8 years we’ve been here the latest we’ve seen boats in at Birchdale was April 1st. Every year is different, but the one thing that remains is we’ll be watching!
In the meantime we’re still ice fishing. Lakes throughout the state will be pulling houses in, now that we hit March, but up here on the border they give us a little more time
As always morning and evening bite is best.

We’re gearing up for prespawn! March 1st is the official first day. We finally had some decent temperatures, it’s going to cool down again but not nearly as cold as it has been. As March approaches the cold snaps will get shorter.
A blanket of snow early this winter helped keep the ice from getting terribly thick Nothing like the ice we seen in 2007 when 1st boats didn’t go in until April 1st. That’s the latest we’ve seen it open since we’ve been here. As soon as things start to loosen up we’ll be watching to see what this spring will hold for us!
Best fishing is morning and evening on the river as usual. Reports on the Lake has best fishing up by the angle. We’ll be watching for best fishing reports and more action heading closer to the river!
I will also be posting ice out reports on Facebook this year and already have a page created!
I have moved our “Apparel” page to our Facebook store for now. Just see our Facebook page and click onto the Store. I’m starting to post things, but still learning. Our 2014 calendars are currently on sale there and I will be posting Prespawn T’s and sweatshirts on there soon! Since we are changing our design watch for old design shirt to go on sale!!!

Temps are finally expected to get a bit warmer! At least to the temperatures we should be closer to what they should be
Bite is morning and evening but only a few here and there. Sounds like the best spot on the river is near the airport in Baudette right now.

It’s finally February! Which means next month Walleye Prespawn! As long as this winter has seemed to be it’s nice to realize this new season is right around the corner!
This time of year the river fishing will slow, kind of the calm before the storm. Now we wait for the weather to begin to warm and draw the walleye back into the river. With this time we have started to prepare for prespawn and will soon be ordering some shirts for the occasion.

Despite conditions like this
Anglers caught a couple walleye like this
this past weekend. Most reports we got in were fishing got tougher thru the weekend, but did have one group say they did rather well Sunday.
The latest cold system just went through and today was actually pleasant.
Despite record cold weather, ice on the river stayed at around 18-20 inches. Thanks to large amounts of snow before the cold. Hard to believe not long from now we’ll be looking for open river! But after the winter so far? I’m chomping at the bit!

Hit the Lake again yesterday, didn’t get as much action as the day before so they’re heading back up today Regular jigs aren’t doing much, spoons are doing WAY better! Gold/yellow glitter.

Went up to the Lake today and braved the strong wind! Got about a dozen keepers including this good size perch! This 23″ walleye was pretty cool too
We were at about 30′. Between the 3 of us the most walleye were caught on a blue color, biggest on yellow/orange, and 1st fish was on a yellow/green.
