Anglers on Rainy Lake can expect a great walleye opener! Rainy had a great walleye spawn in 2010 and 2011. Those fish are now 13 - 17". Plus the new slot limits are in effect and walleye anglers can now keep walleyes up to 18" with one over 26". Previously walleyes had to be under 17" with anglers able to keep a trophy over 28".
We are blessed to have such a healthy and diverse fishery! The warmer water temps have triggered the bite on slab crappies in Black Bay and Northern Pike are going full steam ahead!
If you are looking for a waterfront property on a world class fishery your search will end on Rainy Lake!
