October on the Rainy river has to be some of the best fishing in the state.

Hey Slick. it looks like you have a tough choice on your hands...Both of those lakes offer quality fishing as well as other options for day trips to smaller bodies of water. My solution would be to spend a week on each!! smile.gif -nunzio

I'd add the Cass Lake chain to that list. In the same area, relatively little pressure and has a reputation for producing some real pigs in the fall. We've fished it the past two Octobers and have done very well. Not many big fish(8 1/2 lb biggest so far) but lots of good eater fish. Plus a few muskies and pike thrown in for good measure.

We also bring the shotguns along. Very good grouse hunting up there too with lots of public land.

I have to agree with Borch on the Cass Lake chain trip, I've gone with him on a couple of occasions and done well. It's a good thing he can fish because the grouse have nothing to fear from his aim smile.gif

Some very good destinations so far and
I would like to add Lake Vermilion to the list. smile.gif
Excellent fishing for walleye, muskie,
pike and smallmouth bass. After labor day, you can fish for hours and not see another boat.

Except for me of course.... smile.gif

My vote would be for the Rainy River, north of Baudette, in late October. I've been going up there for several years and the fishing is always good. There are BIG walleyes there as well as the occasional sturgeon. A couple of years ago my fishing partner boated two 8+ pound walleyes in under an hour (both released).

I also agree with fishing on the Rainy in October, albeit a bias opinion. I caught my biggest mid-November - a whopping 30" 11 1/4 pounder.

The wonderful thing about the Rainy is you have about 38 miles of river to fish, starting from Birchdale down to LOW.

Good luck in your fall fishing trip where ever you go!!

I would take a week off and fish a small walleye lake that I never fished before thats near to a brook trout lake. Find the fish in both and have a ball. Mind you this would be during grouse and fall color season.
I would even pick blue berries and lay on a sunny bank and fall asleep while looking at a Fall Blue Bird sky.
The Sky is Blue The Sun Is Warm...Ahhh I all ready there.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
