Summer Fishing Starting Hot

An incredible week of walleye fishing on the big pond. Strong numbers of walleyes and saugers continue. Lots of walleyes and saugers being caught with anglers catching and enjoying across the lake. Overall, really good fishing with nice quality keepers. Key depths around 18-30' of water. Jig and a frozen shiner or leech has been the best presentation with gold or glow jigs. Pulling spinners also effective with hammered gold or silver good colors. Reefs and mud holding fish. Jumbo perch and pike mixed in with angler catches.

Walleyes in the Rainy River with a good morning bite. Fish running smaller than lake fish, but a good day can be had. Smallmouth bass fishing going well. Try feeder streams to Rainy River, rock piles and bridges. Shallow diving crankbaits, jigs and plastics or small spinners for bass. Sturgeon fishing opens again July 1st.

Up at the NW Angle, strong success continues on both the MN and Ontario sides. Many have limits in just a few hours. Both rock and mud producing walleyes. Flag Island flats producing nicely this week in 5-7' otherwise 18-26' the norm. Harnesses with a bottom bouncer preferred over jig and a minnow. Colors should include chartreuse, pink, glow colors and of course gold. Smallies moving shallow and hungry. Muskie season opens June 17th! Lodging, charters and guides are available
