Minnesota border waters likely to see high spring fishing traffic
The Rainy River is one of the most popular rivers to fish along the Canadian border. There are plenty of trophy fish in its waters, but anglers need to be aware of the rules.
Matt Skoog, Baudette fisheries area supervisor for the DNR, said the most popular fish in the Rainy are walleyes, sauger, lake sturgeon, northern pike, and smallmouth bass. Depending on the time of year, some fish are easier to catch than others.
