Rainbow Point?

2 posts in this topic

Anyone ever stay at Rainbow Point on Perrault Lake? How's the fishing? Nice place to stay? Is the food at the resturaunt down the road any good? Looking to head up there mid August, do the walleye still bit that time of year? Thanks.

I stayed at Rainbow Point six or seven times while in high school and college. Bob and Gale the owners do a great job running the camp. I think Bob still calls my Dad once or twice a year and it has been a decade since we fished there. Very friendly people and they work hard to try and make everyone in camp have a good trip.

Never been there in mid August. One year we fished mid July and caught nice walleyes on sunken islands mostly in the evenings. A depth finder, marker bouys, and probably a handheld GPS would be needed to fish them. Alot of the sunken islands where not marked on the provided maps.

We also once fished over Labor Day weekend, but the lake had just turned over and fishing was tough until the last day of our trip. All our other trips where in early spring. It has been 13 years since I have been there so I can't help you out to much.

We did have Bob line us up with a guide for the first two days we fished the first year and it was money well spent. He showed us alot of spots to fish. Not all of them had fish the first year, but on subsequent trips they really payed of.

Good luck on your trip you picked a good camp and hopefully the fish will cooperate.

    • Hillary makes fun of Retarded people!  Didn't see that all over!
    • Hilly says yes, yes, yes...and yes, and yes... It was putin with hair.    
    • "Build a wall".. Good idea ? Bad idea ? That's debatable.   Want to stump a liberal ? Ask them what is hillary's plan to control illegal immigration ?
    • Who knocked her out? That certainly isn't Trump. Is that Putin with more hair?
    • View from the ground blind.  Straight ahead there is a secondary trail moving left to right that goes around some wet lowland and that intersects with a larger main trail that was out the window to my right that skirts the lowland on the north side.  I have the blind set up so that the secondary trail is 20 yards away and the main trail is 17 yards away.   Had a doe walk down the secondary trail the first day I hunted this spot but had the blind set up in a different location and I didn't see the doe until it was 10 feet from my blind and by that time its mighty hard to draw a bow without spooking a deer thats close enough to know what I had for breakfast. 
    • Same with when Trump says is going to build a wall, just fodder for the LIVs.    
    • Gary Johnson comments on the debate while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel show:   “It’s crazy the notion of deporting 11 million undocumented workers — in New Mexico, how’s that going to work where half the population is Hispanic?” said Mr. Johnson, The Hill reported. But “the biggest hoo-hah of the evening,” he continued, “the biggest whopper was when Hillary said, ‘Hey, I’m not going to add a penny to the deficit.’ Come on.” “Maybe she meant that literally,” Mr. Kimmel joked. “She’s not going to add a penny to the deficit.” Mr. Johnson laughed, adding, “$30 trillion, maybe, but not a penny.”
    • So when she says something like "no new taxes on anyone making less than $250K per year", it really doesn't mean a thing, it's just fodder for LIVs...
