Fishing Report
South end 
Late summer patterns are kicking out big walleyes. Trolling crankbaits in the basin and drifting with spinners and crawlers both strong methods.  Main depths are 30-34′.  Some anglers still jigging frozen shiners over the mud with success.  Jigs performing well are gold, pink, orange, and chartreuse.
Rainy River
Sturgeon anglers reporting some fish of all sizes being caught.  Variety of other fish being caught while fishing for sturgeon as well.  Reports of some nice walleyes drifting spinners and trolling cranks.  Smallmouth bass near rocky areas and bridges.
NW Angle
Walleye fishing remains great.  Fish being targeted in 22 – 29′ of water.  Spinners and crawlers have been the go-to with gold, pink and orange hot colors.  Lots of walleyes eating crayfish currently.  Reefs still holding fish.  Some nice muskies and pike being caught amongst the islands.
