Sorry for the late report. Fishing was a bit of a struggle as the mayfly hatch was still going. Fish were scattered all over the place. We would catch a few and they would be gone (guess thats how it goes on Rainy). We never locked into them. 

Our best luck by far was with crawlers (half usually) with orange spinner/colors.  

Cast gold spinners/colors were best. 

Purple crank baits got a few northerns trolling. 

Biggest eye was 22 inches. Guess the fishing was picking up when we were leaving.

We were not finding fish on the reefs last week (July 7-13, 2018). They were in deeper flats where there was a good amount of moving water (either wind or current) with access to deep water. We marked a ton of fish but they just wanted something that mimicked the mayfly hatch.

We fished pretty hard a enjoyed the heck out of the lake but never dialed into the fish. Also enjoyed Island View Lodge. 

Good luck all.

Be there tomorrow.  Found fish in mid 20's last year.  Fatheads with a jig is all I needed.  Trolled and picked up some larger one's that were chasing bait balls.  Have fun, and good luck.

Coming to Rainy in a few weeks. Just wondering if there are any updates. Colors to use, minnows, leeches, crawlers?? Depths? Don’t need locations, just want to make sure we have what we need when we get there. 

Hopefully we can catch some walleyes, pike and a few bass or panfish. 

Any help would be appreciated.

Caught countless walleyes, but couldn't get anything even close to trophy fish.  Except for a run-in with a big +/-40" pike that bit a small walleye being reeled in.  It let go at boat side so it did not get landed.  The best part of the trip was the big slab crappies we caught.  What a treat to catch giant crappies in Canada.  Cant wait until next year..

Heading up here this weekend and fishing on the Canada side.  Im thinking fish are probably deeper in teh 20 +/- fow.  We will probably target mid lake humps and other structure and fish the sides..

Decided to do something different and headed to Rainy Lake to try and catch some walleyes. Try is the key word. We caught a bunch of small walleyes under 12". We we're pulling spinners and slow death. Also pulled crankbaits. I wasn't impressed this time around.
