RAINY RIVE IN MARCH

4 posts in this topic

JUST WONDERING IF ANY ONE HAS GONE AND DONE ANY LATE ICE FISHING OUT ON THE RIVER BETWEEN MARCH AND APRIL. I'M CURIOUS IF PEOPLE ARE GOING UP THE TO FISH THE RIVER OUT IN FRONT OF ALL THE LODGES OR GETTING ON SLEDS AND HEADING OUT TO THE LAKE. MAINLY HOW TO FISH THE AREA AT THIS TIME OF YEAR.

Yes, April is ridiculous on the river (there are stretches where you can literally walk boat to boat), but the action is undeniable. You have a legitimate shot at an 8, 10, or even bigger 'eye, and you should be boating 50-100 fish a day or you're fishing the wrong day!

The sturgeon action can be awesome, too, but if you hook into a 50-60" on light line, you might as well pitch a tent... Plan on anchoring and vertical jigging with 1/2 to 3/4 oz jigs, heavier at times depending on the current, and use chubs or shiners--either one works as well as the other when the fish are feeding as voraciously as they do this time of year, so save a buck and get the chubs. The landings are a nightmare of impatient, fisherman trying to land their boats, but the rewards are worth the hassle. Plan on wrapping up a hour or more before dark, though, or you'll never beat daylight trying to load up in that circus...
