Spring walleye fishing on the Rainy River. Epic catch and release walleye fishing that many anglers cherish. This is one of the best opportunities in Minnesota for catching a 30-inch or bigger class walleye.

We spot-lock current seams and cast jigs and plastics. The 1/4 ounce Northland MVP Jig paired with an Eye Candy Paddle Shad is a deadly river walleye combo. We share a lot of info for finding and catching walleye on the Rainy River. Observations for this spring include low water with little runoff. Visibility when we fished the river was about 2 to 3 feet which is clean for a spring river.

A big tool for breaking down water fast is side imaging and then using spot lock to hold upstream or across from fish where the fish can be cast at. Dragging jigs upstream is also very deadly on the Rainy River. Because the current velocities are so much lower this spring, we found that you do have to compensate with your speed and jig stroke to give the jig and plastic action.

When the stars align on the Rainy River, this is some of the best walleye fishing in the Midwest for anglers simply wanting to catch a lot of fish with the potential for some giant fish.
