River is going down

Fishing Reports





Had a great 4th of July weekend! We did our fishing on the Lake since the river current is still strong.

We fished 20′to 13′ and most in between. Biggest walleye was 22″, otherwise we kept busy with smaller walleye and some keepers. They were biting more on minnows vs crawlers.

The river is slowly going down which will slow the current. Debris has slowed a lot and the Lake had less debris as well.

Sturgeon season is officially open! They’ve been jumping quite a bit in the river too!

Even more rain

Fishing Reports


The rain seems to keep coming and water levels are higher than I’ve seen them. There are many warnings for the area from International Falls to Lake of the Woods.


There’s a lot of debris in the Bay and River. Hopefully this rain will back off and give the river a chance to recede  and clear. We’ll keep posting. In the meantime the current is very strong so be careful in the river.

Anglers were doing well, despite the debris, in the Lake. Our guests are up there today, we’ll hear how things were later this evening.

High water

Fishing Reports

The Rainy water level is pretty high right now and there was quite a bit of debris in the river the last few days.  Large amounts of rain and the opening of 13 of the 15 gates at the dam in International Falls contributed to the  rising water.

Good news is the USGS maps showed it has now leveled off and today showed signs of going back down.


The Blawat group boated this 66″ sturgeon May 26 at Twin Islands. They seen others hook into sturgeon as well. They mentioned quite a few sturgeon being very active in the early a.m. jumping out of the water.

Thanks for the picture guys!!!!

Anglers caught their limits on the river over the weekend! Water temp today is finally hitting lower 40′s and all the walleye they cleaned were still full of eggs.

Orange and orange/white were best colors
