We had a very eventful June of family events that took us some time away from the resort. Although we were busy it was a much needed break from an awesome spring season.
Now we are already reaching the 4th of July which can be bitter sweet being on the river. Bitter in the fact that walleye make you work harder for them, but sweet in the fact that after the 4th of July we head into fall and the fishing gets better and better!
With many storms with plenty of rain the last couple weeks the river has gone up and the current is strong at this time.
July 1st opens sturgeon season again. With a strong current you’ll need a lot of weight and a lot of crawlers. When fishing for sturgeon look for deep holes on the bottom, anchor up river from them, and cast to them. The river is high but typically deepest you’ll see on the Rainy is about 25 ft.
Good luck and enjoy summer!!!!

We lucked out with great weather over Memorial Day Weekend, enjoying every minute!
After some much needed days of rain the last couple weeks it churned up the river pretty good. The last day or 2 showed much improvement in clarity again.
Smallies and northern have been active and walleye are biting in the river as well. When water clarity isn’t good don’t forget to go shallow for the walleye, that’s typically where they hide.
But clarity is on the rebound and the rain has greened up the area. Looks like it’s going to be a beautiful summer!

Weather for fishing opener never forgets to be chilly with a little rain to boot! Even a little snow.
Anglers reported doing better in the river vs the Lake. Early morning and evening bite has been best.
Sauger have helped fill some limits and smallies are beginning to perk up as well.
We’re looking forward to a great fishing season!

Rono group is finding some big ones!
Sturgeon season closes the 7th but catch and release goes to the 15th. In the midst of sturgeon, some larger walleye have been showing themselves as well. Hopefully setting us up for a great opening weekend!

Bruess Group~”We were up from Thursday thru Sunday and had a really tough time Thursday and Friday, but scraped out a few smaller ones. Saturday night and early Sunday morning before we left we had the best action. 57″, 2-59″, and a 60″. My sister was able to catch her first sturgeon on Thursday and her biggest was 53″.
Thanks for the update! Some great catches!

The bite started out slow last weekend, but by Sunday anglers were seeing more sturgeon action.
Today’s bite continued to pick up!

Winkelman Group~”Here’s some pics from our trip the weekend of the 11th-14th. Had a great time on the river and in the bay. Caught probably 150 fish in the 4 days on the water, 25 of them being sturgeon with a 56in being the largest. Turning into an annual trip for us! Can’t wait for next year already.”
Thanks for the pics!
