Fisheries Resort Rainy Lake

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been to this resort? I am looking for a new place to go for a trip in June. I have heard pretty good things about the fishing and the lodge but have only spoke to one person with first hand knowledge. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

 

Bryan

I have not been to this resort, but have fished in Red Gut and Bear Pass area. Plenty of good water to fish - had good luck the last few years when we ventured up that way. We did stop at one place for gas that was south east of the rail road bridge, has a big breakwater. Service was ok - but all the building we went in were run down. Not sure if that was Fisheries or not.image.png.1ec30402ab41cc454b97d0f3c4ec9c6d.png

Thank you for the insight on the fishing. I've heard some pretty good things about the bays in tbat area. Are there a ton of boats in that area?

When we have been there it is late July, early August and we have not encountered a lot of boat traffic. We are usually the only ones around, once you get outside of Bear Pass and further up the bays.

I was there when we were younger about 25 years ago or so...we actually went there a few times.  It wasn't at the time a high class resort by any means but the bass and pike fishing were great and the walleye was decent enough that we caught our meals.  In fact I remember catching crappies up there over 30 or so feet of water in August.  At the time the cabins we stayed in were older but they were only used for sleeping anyways but they had all the amenities that we needed.  I have been thinking of going back there...

    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
    • Ok getting things back on track.  Next month will be my 14th year and I think I've only met one other member.  Met Frank (Surface Tension) several years back on Fish Lake near Duluth.  He was incredibly helpful and generous sharing his knowledge of the lake.  If I remember right my dad and I drove up and Frank called saying the forecast looked like rain for the entire day.  Well my dad and I were already on the way and were going to fish rain or shine so Frank and his son still geared up and met us for some fishing.  I don't remember exactly how the day broke down but I remember get really wet but also catching a lot of nice fish.  I've fished the lake a lot since but that was my best day by a long shot. 
    • I am making Christmas jerky packs for gifts by request   so where do I send my request??!!!  enjoy them good eats!!!
    • Thanks Frank. Your another member I have met about 5 times sledding, Twig swap, old Bside Bash and never got in front of the camera?  🙂   Lets get this thread back on track about meeting folks on this site for Outdoor activities and stop giggling about a guys titties! 🙄
