The ice is finally dissipating at a good rate close to the Wigwam docks so all of you that asked about the ice around the docks now have your answer. We anticipate all the ice being totally gone by this Friday (two days away).
Once again the boats are in front of the Wigwam Resort in Four Mile Bay hammering the fish, Sturgeon and Walleye. Rainy River is still a bit muddy and the debris is flowing I hope that it will settle down here within the next few days. We still have cold water temps, which mean that the bit is a little slow, but if youre out in front of the Wigwam, youre still catching fish and having fun. There has been good size to the fish (Sturgeon 50-60 and Walleye 20-30) and we anticipate that to keep steady throughout the next few weeks as the fish are making their way into the river to do their business before they make the journey back into the big lake.
I also want to mention that we had one lodge room open up for two people if anyone is interested in staying with us at the Wigwam Resort during the festivities (April 22 25), please call our office if you are interested, remember, first come first serve, so dont miss out.
The Sturgeon Excursion is only 2 DAYS AWAY YES!!!!!!!!
