Rainy River Update!
The Rainy River is now open 7 miles east of Baudette and open spots within 5. This is 19 miles from the lodge. Birchdale landing (32 miles east of Baudette) and Frontier landing (17 miles east of Baudette) are open. Vidas landing (8 miles east of Baudette) has water flowing by but still some shore ice left on the landing. Next landing to open will be Timbermill Park just on the east edge of Baudette.
Hopefully, with the warmer temps coming in in a few days we will have 4 landings open by Saturday and open water at the lodge within a week.
Several groups did very good fishing over the weekend. Lots of good action of all size walleyes and some nice sturgeon too. Water clarity is about a foot.

Have the Forks gone out yet? If not, what’s the prediction?
Hi Scott, No. It has been pretty cold here this week. All depends on how fast it warms up. Too hard to really predict, pretty solid right now.
I was told that the thaw has been slow so not alot of hard runoff with debri it it. At least thats what i heard from a local ip there?????
Is there any places to drop a camper while we fish the river along 11. Any City camping at landing by timbermill park????
