Head to the River or the Lake…

…and you shall find fish.  The Rainy River provided not only the needed windbreak but also the limits of walleyes and saugers that fisherman were seeking. Gold jigs tipped with frozen shiners are producing the greatest amounts but have also heard that pink or white jigs are productive as well.  The shiner run continues in the River and most anywhere, especially in the 18’ depth, from the International Bridge to the Gap, will put you on the walleyes. Areas outside of Morris Point in the 18’-20’ depths are also producing well for anglers.  Up and around Garden Island in the 18’-22’ depth gave anglers their limits as well.  The water temp is currently at 49.5 degrees.  Temperatures forecasted for the week range greatly from highs in the mid-40’s to mid-60’s and lows in the low 30’s to mid-40’s and variable winds from 7-17mph.
