On the south end... Strong walleye bite this week. Water temps cooling off, migration has started and walleyes are putting on the feed bag for winter. Walleyes in good numbers along south shore with a big school still in front of Lighthouse Gap (mouth of Rainy River) in 28' - 30'. Various schools of walleyes along south shore and also holding to structure areas. Emerald shiners continue to run in some bays and Rainy River, but not heavy. Anglers having success trolling crankbaits, drifting spinners and anchored up and jigging. The fall jig bite is coming on strong. Some live shiners are available at local resorts and bait shops.

On the Rainy River... Emerald shiners in the river, not a huge run, but it has started. Continued Good reports of walleyes in Four Mile Bay as well as up river east of Baudette. Most common depth, 14-16'. The fall run has definitely started. Snelled spinners and jigging the go to method. Sturgeon anglers also reporting good success as well.

Up at the NW Angle... Walleye fishing excellent. Walleyes being caught in various spots around Garden Island and around islands and in funnel areas between islands. Jigging around structure and pulling spinners or cranks over flats all effective. Crappies and perch activity continues to pick up as water cools.
