The water level has been going down slowly, then a couple inches of rain the other night brought it up again slightly, but not to the levels a couple weeks ago
Anglers continue to fish the river, but the current is still moving rather quickly.
Water temps are cooler this summer (so far) than typical for this time of year. This will help fall water temps fall quicker

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!

Lake of the Woods Control Board reported the Rainy River has now rose to the highest its been in 85 years! We’ve seen what it’s been doing here, so today we headed east.
The above photos were Vidas Landing
And the end of the road for us, Loman.
Despite the high water fish have been biting!
Lake has had good reports and walleye have been biting right from our dock, as it hangs on for dear life! Just got to dodge a few trees

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.

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!!!!

We got through the Holiday weekend with beautiful weather! But rains this week now have the water level in the river on the rise now and the current picking up a bit.
With June here the Bay is full of active small mouth bass! It’s usually the best month of the year for the smallies!!!

Have a fun and safe Memorial day weekend!!!
Weather is supposed to be great, river is going down, and fish are biting!!! Smallies were jumping in the bay yesterday, any of you looking for small mouth bass the Clementson Bay is a great spot for them! There are also great size northern in the channels of the bay. Walleye remain in the river and lately have been shallow.
Come out, enjoy the water, check out the pelicans, and listen to sturgeon jump in the distance!
