Crankbaits continue to produce walleyes on the rocks during the
evening in seven to 14 feet. Perch are worth fishing in the bays
during mid-day hours. The weeds have gone down in the bays, making
muskies a target in these locations.

The Clementson, Birchdale, and Frontier areas of the Rainy River
continue to produce walleyes. On the main lake, Morris Point and
Lighthouse Gap have been productive with a jig and minnow. Deer
hunting reports have been decent with most groups seeing quite a
few deer.

A few anglers are finding walleyes with jigs and minnows off the
points in eight to 10 feet. The deer season has gone well and
actually improved after opening day with the cooler weather. Duck
hunters are doing well and there are some bluebills on the big
water. There are grouse being shot, but it hasn’t been as good as
anticipated heading into the season.

A few walleyes are being caught on minnows in the bigger bays.
Work 24 to 30 feet during the day, but slide up shallower during
the evening hours. There isn’t much to report from hunters, other
than some decent goose numbers to be had.

The mouth of the Little Fork River is producing walleyes at a
decent pace. Look to the Reiner area and Sand Bay for walleyes in
18 to 24 feet. Deer hunting reports have been mixed, although there
seems to be a “fair amount” of deer in the area. Grouse and duck
numbers are low.

Fishing activity has come to an end. With the deer season under
way, there hasn’t been anyone on the lake. Look for the first ice
fishing reports of the season to begin in a few weeks.
