Featured Update

CO Eric Benjamin (Warroad North) worked ATV, boat and water, AIS and angling enforcement. Just getting a bite was the highlight of some anglers’ days for most of the week on the Rainy River, as fishing was tough at best. Poor water clarity, floating and submerged debris, fast current, rain, freezing rain and snow all mixed with a pinch of strong winds were the ingredients for this week’s featured dish – and it was served cold! The good news is Four Mile Bay is now open and with some nicer weather in the forecast fishing should be a little more enjoyable. With any luck, the bite will pick back up as well for the remainder of the catch-and-release season for sturgeon.
